Welcome to the Church of St. Jude!

Welcome to the web site of the Church of St. Jude in Rochester, Illinois. As the pastor of this parish, it is my joy to greet you and express my gratitude for your interest in our parish. The Church of St. Jude is built on the stewardship of its members, sharing time in prayer, assisting with their talents and giving for the support of the mission of Jesus. I invite you to contact any of our parish staff for assistance in your faith journey. We hope that you find a warm welcome among our Church family as you gather to worship God at Mass or share in the other activities of our parish. May God bless you.

Sincerely in Christ,
Father Brian Alford, Pastor
