St. Jude Mission Statement
We, the people of St. Jude Parish and the Diocese of Knoxville, are called by the Father to live God’s word and to continuously grow in faith, hope and love.
As Catholics, we proclaim the good news of Jesus. As a loving and caring community, we seek to strengthen our bonds with all Catholics and set an example for all brothers and sisters in Christ through our prayerful actions.
With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we commit our talents and resources to provide for the spiritual and physical needs of our parish and the greater Chattanooga community. Calling on the Spirit to help us grow in our understanding of the work He entrusts to us, we members of the parish pledge to be an active force in carrying out this mission.
