Message from the Bishop

I am very pleased to announce that the time has arrived for us in the Diocese of Palm Beach to return to a more normal attendance in church by relaxing the pandemic safety restrictions which have limited us for over a year. As of the weekend of June 19/20, the general dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass will no longer be necessary and will be lifted. However, one may still excuse oneself from attending Mass for reasons of health, tending to an infirm person, or out of concern for contracting or spreading an illness.
I am also pleased to announce that, as of the same weekend, the majority of safety restrictions in place within our churches will no longer be necessary. It is left to the prudent judgment of each pastor to determine what is best for his particular church. Church chapels may be used for weekday Masses and chapels of Eucharistic adoration may also be opened in accord with liturgical norms. However, for the present time, it will still not be possible to provide Holy Communion under both species as well as to fill traditional holy water fonts. The manner of the sharing of a sign of peace at Mass will be at the prudent discretion of each of the faithful.
Precaution and safety are the primary concerns which must be considered in the matter of wearing masks. In church, it is left to the judgement of each vaccinated person whether to wear a mask or not, while it is a just expectation, in a forum of trust, that an unvaccinated person wear one for the present time. Masks and hand sanitizers will continue to be made available in church.
I am deeply grateful to our priests and all of our faithful who have cooperated so well in following the safety precautions during this difficult time. You have made a Catholic church one of the safest places to be and we want to ensure that this continues for the future. The livestreaming of Masses and liturgical services have proven to be a great blessing and are still encouraged on a local level for the spiritual enrichment of the faithful.
We thank God for the progress that has been made to this point and ask His continued protection in remaining safe and healthy.
With every prayerful wish, I am Sincerely yours in Christ, Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito

our mission

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.


A few thoughts from our Parishioners about St. Jude Catholic Church in Boca Raton, FL

"St. Jude holds a special place in our hearts. We met in the Gathering Place in the fall of 2011 and were married in the church in 2014. We have a deep appreciation for the clergy, the music ministry, and the strong sense of parish community."


Michael & Luisa Indiviglio


" We first came to St. Jude Church when looking at local Catholic Schools in the area for our oldest son. The moment we stepped on to the church grounds, my husband and I both felt a sense that we had found the place for our family to grow together in our faith. We have been parishioners of St. Jude for over 6 years now and all three of our sons attend St. Jude School. We have peace in knowing that our children are being loved and nurtured as they grow in their faith. We feel a strong sense of community at St. Jude and because of this community, we have found multiple opportunities for our family to become involved. We feel very blessed! "
Dan & Heather Urban
