Out of His infinite glory, may he give you the power
Through His Spirit for your hidden self to grow strong.
So that, Christ may live in your hearts through faith,
And then, planted in love, and built on love, you will with all the saints,
Have strength to grasp the breath and length, the height and depth,
Until knowing the love of Christ, which is beyond all knowledge,
You are filled with the utter fullness of God. (Ephesians 3: 16-19)
St. Jude’s Centre opened in October 2018 with a fourfold vision.
A Home of Welcome and Hospitality
Everyone is welcome to come and experience living at home with us,
At the Dining Table and when we Pray and relax, to rest and to participate in the life of the community.
A Home of Prayer
We hope that Christ will come to live and reign in the hearts of all who pray with us.
The centre is dedicated to Our Lady from its inception. Daily we consecrate our lives to the Mother of Jesus and we honour her by praying the Rosary. We ask her intercession for all who visit us.
St. Jude is patron saint of the Centre.
A Community Home
Living and working side by side we are planted and rooted in the Love of God
and together we pray earnestly to grow in that love.
A Place of Healing
By the power of the Spirit we want to see your hidden self grow strong, nurtured by the prayers and love of the Community so that you may truly blossom into the people you are called to be.
We believe in the words of St. Paul to the Philippians:
“There is no need to worry, but if there is anything you need,
Pray for it, asking God for it with prayer and thanksgiving,
And that peace of God, which is so much greater than we can understand,
Will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.”
(Phillippians 4: 6-8 )
