Caritas – St. Jude
Caritas of St. Jude is an apostolate that serves the needy in our parish and our community. We give assistance for utility, rent, or medical needs. We sponsor a community meal on the fourth Thursday of each month for people in need of food and /or fellowship. We maintain a food pantry that is stocked by donations from our parishioners. Food assistance is given when requested. We also distribute food boxes at the community meal and at Thanksgiving and Christmas. If you are interested in helping to meet the mission of this apostolate, please contact Nancy Tompkins at (330) 482-9330.
Women’s Guild – St. Jude
The Women’s Guild started in 1953 before there was a Catholic Church in Columbiana. The group’s primary purpose was to build a Christian fellowship. During the “mission” years of our parish, when Masses were held at the Joshua Dixon School, we took turns preparing the altar for Mass and laying out the vestments for the priests. Today, the Guild supports many charities in addition to the many projects done at St. Jude. Members meet the first Wednesday of the month in the St. Jude Activity Center. New members are always welcome.
