Good Samaritan Ministry


St. Jude Parish supports various local organizations in need through the "Good Samaritan Ministry". Check here for the  ministry that we are currently assisting and for the needs of that organization. 

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a lay Catholic ministry that promotes the spiritual growth of its members through service to the poor. Your donation allows our trained volunteers to visit people that are in need of food or other financial assistance that will help get them through a tough time. The ministry's emergency line (423-999-6332) is very busy right now as so many are dealing with the employment fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you in advance for your donation!
