Senior Citizen Ministry

For Our Pillars of the Church - Ages 55 and Up

We are so delighted and blessed to welcome a new Ministry to St Jude Thaddeus! It is our very own “Senior Citizen Ministry”. This ministry will consist of members of age 55 and over. Here at St. Jude Thaddeus we definitely consider our “older but wiser” brothers and sisters in Christ, our “PILLARS OF THE CHURCH”! If you are ever looking to learn how to become closer to God or looking to experience such a unique warmth and unfathomable spirituality that goes deeper than any retreat or class can possibly provide, simply humble yourselves and take some time and sit down with one of our Senior Citizens to talk just a bit. You will experience such a miraculous and beneficial time with them and in turn providing the same type of blessing in return for them! “God Works in Mysterious Ways”

If you are a Senior Citizen, 55 years or older, please save the date for these upcoming events:
