Message from the Finance Council
Update from St. Jude Finance Council, 30 Sep 2020
Our parish has been weathering the pandemic with resilience. The parishioners have helped in many ways including with their financial support. The offertory collections have increased from 60 to 63 percent and are now ranging between 80 to 81 percent of expectations. We are very appreciative of those who have continued to contribute. Thank you for your support and sacrifice.
While we are encouraged with the increase in our income, we are still falling short of what is needed to cover our budgeted expenses to run the parish. Please keep this in mind as you prayerfully consider your offertory contributions. For those of you at home who are not able to attend Mass, but are able to contribute, we ask that you please make your customary offerings in support of the many ministries and administration of our parish. These activities continue to be important for all of us in our time of need and of course our everyday lives.
Contributions can be made by several methods. Attending the limited masses, you can use the collection baskets located at the back of the church. By mail, please send your church envelopes with your offering to our address at 152 Tulip Drive, Lewes DE 19958-1689. At the entrance to the Parish Office, there is a drop box in which you can deposit your offertory. Also, online giving is available through the WeShare system. Please click Online Giving on the St. Jude’s website (www.stjudelewes.org ) to access WeShare. If you have any questions regarding any form of giving, please call the Parish Office at 302-644-7300 or email [email protected].
We ask our Lord to be present in each of your daily lives as each of you are in our prayers to come through these difficult times inspired to receive the enrichment of God’s grace.

As time goes by we see some lessening of some restrictions, but the use of face masks and social distancing promises to be the new normal for some time to come.
