I am the Vine, You are the Branches
Jesus said to his disciples, “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever abides in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit. Apart from me you can do nothing. Whoever does not abide in me will be thrown away like a withered branch. Such branches are gathered up, thrown into the fire, and burned. “If you abide in me and my words abide in you, you may ask for whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples. As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Remain in my love.”
Listing of ministries and coordinators
Liturgical Life Groups
As Roman Catholics, our main activity is to gather together and worship our Lord Jesus Christ through mass and other prayer experiences. This is called liturgy. Whether it is mass, or Baptisms, or and evening of prayer, these liturgies need the support of hundreds of people to help prepare and support the prayer experience. The following are the area where you can assist Saint Jude in supporting our liturgies.
If you are interested in volunteering to help Saint Jude please contact the parish office at 814-833-0927 or send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
