Sometimes life brings situations when you need a helping hand for a while. St. Jude Helping Hands Ministry can be there to help you through a difficult time. The Helping Hands Ministry is supported by volunteers from the parish who seek to help those who are in need for a short time due to illness, accident, family crisis, birth of a new baby etc.
We are inspired by the gospel message of Jesus Christ who calls us to care for one another.

Rides to doctor appointments
