Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts provide a fun and educational experience for boys in grades one through five. This ministry provides a place where boys can enjoy safe, wholesome activities.

Our objectives are to build character, improve physical fitness, teach practical skills and develop a spirit of community service.

Pack meetings, for all grades, are held once each month. Den meetings, for different grade levels, meet once or twice each month. A community service project is completed every other month and we go camping one weekend per year.

Boy Scouts

The teachings of Christ are reflected in the most fundamental guidelines of scouting—the Scout Oath and the Scout Law— which the boys are required to memorize immediately upon joining the group.

Christian values and objectives are practiced by the Scouts and hopefully, incorporated into their daily lives. The primary work of the Boy Scouts is to develop in adolescent boys certain qualities and attributes that will assist them in becoming responsible, caring and productive adults.

The principle objectives of scouting are to develop an appreciation of the duties and privileges of citizenship, faithfulness, duty to God, service to community, leadership skills, respect for the nature, and self esteem.

Scouting attempts to develop these qualities through outdoor activities, service projects, advancement requirements and interaction with other boys in a troop and patrol format. In addition to a montly meeting, at least one weekend outing per month is planned, e.g. camping, hiking, boating, merit badge activities.

Subject to the demands of their schoolwork, scouts are required to attend all troop meetings in full scout uniform and pay nominal weekly dues and are strongly encouraged to pursue advancement and merit badge recognition.

Girl Scouts

Girl Scouting is open to girls between the ages of 5 and 17 who are looking to discover the fun, friendship and power of girls together.

Girls grow courageous and strong through a myriad of enriching experiences aimed at the various program levels from Daisy (Grade K) to Seniors (High School).

The program teaches the girls to relate to others with understanding and respect. Girls are encouraged to develop values, self-potential and to contribute to the improvement of society through various community service projects.

Meetings are on rotating Wednesdays, once or twice per month, following the school calendar.

Divorced & Separated

Oour Loving and Merciful God and our glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, calls all the divorced and separated in our parish to fellowship, healing and to receive love and support from our Catholic Church.

Our "Christ-centered" ministry, called "The Boca Group", will meet weekly. The Lord Jesus, "The Great Healer," the Holy Spirit, "The Great Comforter," and St. Jude, "the patron saint of hopeless cases," will all be there.

Join the group for a lively discussion and a life-changing experience.

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.
