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.
