"Not What You Have, But You" -Fr. Harold Purcell

The City of St. Jude Parish Montgomery


Our Mission

We are the City of St. Jude Catholic Parish located in Montgomery, AL.  Begun by Fr. Harold Purcell in 1934 as a Catholic mission to the African-American Community, we continue to proclaim to everyone we encounter that no-one is without hope who has a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
