Participants from the St. Jude Parish will be interacting virtually with our faith community and get some exercise through a fun and flexible event! Each participant will be able to complete the Virtual 5K Race or Family Walk/Run from February 1st through February 7th. Even though we can't all physically be together, we can still all show support individually or with friends! You can complete the event all at once (5K Race) or do a little bit at a time (Family Walk/Run)! Come join the fun and help support St. Jude!
St. Jude Parish is a Catholic Community of God’s People of the Diocese of Palm Beach located in Boca Raton, Florida, founded in June, 1979. We are a people of diverse backgrounds and ethnic origins united by God, formed by the Gospels, strengthened by the Sacraments and the teachings of the Catholic Church. We seek to deepen our personal union with Jesus Christ and to grow as a faith community. We seek to enrich our heritage of care and concern for all by sharing God’s love and healing with the world around us. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we pledge ourselves to pursue this mission by participation in the liturgical, educational, and social ministries of the Church. We recognize that to be effective, these ministries require spiritual, physical, and financial resources, and we accept our responsibility as Christian Stewards to provide these resources.
