Welcome to St. Jude the Apostle and St. Mary Gate of Heaven

Growing Together for Our Future

 Our Mission

We are a people of faith giving witness to God's love in our community through our commitment in living and sharing the discipleship of Jesus. 

We do this through the celebration of the Word and Sacrament, the practice of peace and justice, and the sharing of our gifts. 

We seek to serve one another and the communities in which we exist through the living and teaching of the Gospel.
