It’s time to go back to school

Dear friends,

It’s time to start a new journey of faith at Saint Jude’s Lent University (Lent U). We hope this holy season of Lent (and Easter) will prove to be a transformative journey of faith for our parish and community. Browse the course catalog below and sign up via FlockNote to be part of our community – learning at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ. 

Our list of options includes courses for mind, body, and spirit. We encourage you to not only sacrifice for Lent, but embrace the traditional disciplines of Lent: to pray, to fast, and to give – differently this year!

We are all learning and growing together!

With Saint Jude, we pray!
