My Tuesday World- St Judes's Catholic Church
The Catholic church my family and I have been attending since 1972 has been Saint Jude's Church at 301 Front Street, Lincoln, Rhode Island 02865 at the corner of River Road and Front Street Route 126. It was founded in 1946 St. Jude was one of the twelve Apostles. Mark’s (3:18) and Matthew’s (10:3) gospels refer to him as Thaddeus (a surname meaning “amiable or “loving”)
Nothing is impossible with GodWhen faced with a difficult situation many people pray to St Jude, he has been known as the "apostle for the impossible."
Recreation Center and Rectory for the church on Front StreetI have many great memories attending and being active with this church community, I was lector for many years as the boys were growing up and my first-born John Michael was Altar server. We actually were scheduled to do the same Mass. I was on the Parish council for several years and taught CCD. The pastor I had for many years was Father George Behan who has since retired On the front door there is a sign posted that tells parishioners and guests that this church is not being used until April 2009.The church is being totally renovated. You can see more stages of construction by clicking on the above St Jude's link.
Our temporary church is located at 5 Higginson Avenue Lincoln, RI 02865
in Keefe Funeral HomeIt seems very strange to be having services win a Funeral Home.
