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

Religious Education



Our religious education program is coordinated by longtime educator and Parish Catechetical Leader Mildred Lewis and her team of catechists. 

Our religious education program will be taken under new leadership as longtime educator and faithful parishioner Mildred Lewis hands the torch to Ms. Jade.  All of our catechists are trained and certified in the latest child protection curriculum of the Archdiocese of Mobile.

In order to register your child in religious education, please contact the Parish Office via phone or email.

The start date for classes will be announced soon so be sure to keep your eyes out in the bulletin

Thank you Ms. Lewis for your many years of serice to the children of God in our community!



Children at St. Jude normally prepare to receive the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion when they are 7 years old.  In order for your child to receive these beautiful Sacraments, please make sure they are enrolled and faithfully attend religious education classes here at St. Jude.  If you have any questions, please contact the Parish Office.



In the Archdiocese of Mobile, the Sacrament of Confirmation is administered by the Archbishop when the confirmandi have reached their Junior year in High School, around 17 years old.  To ensure that your teen is able to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, please contact the Parish Office when they enter Freshman year of High School.
