Announcements

Dear Parishioners,Our Parish Administrator, The Very Reverend Romeo D. Jazmin, V.F. , made a very brief but important announcement after Mass on Thursday.  After extended prayerful reflection, Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout, Bishop of Richmond, has accepted Father Charles’ letter of retirement.  Father Charles, like the Apostle Paul in Acts 20 can say, “I have served the Lord with great humility”.  Father Charles life of service now opens a new chapter, one God will fill with fresh purpose and significance in Christ.  The Diocese of Richmond is now actively seeking a new pastoral leader to serve St. Jude Parish.
May God bless Reverend Charles Saglio, Retired Pastor; Very Reverend Romeo D. Jazmin, V.F.; Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout, Bishop of Richmond, and all servants of the Lord with abiding grace.  We contemplate the words found in Saint Matthew 25:21 (RSVCE), “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.’
Together in Christ.
