St. Jude the Apostle Church was founded in 1960, in what was then an undeveloped area of Sandy Springs, on land generously donated by the Spalding family. Under the leadership of seven successive pastors, we have developed into a lively and faith-filled parish which includes people of all ages and backgrounds. Many parishioners have come here from around the U.S. or from various countries around the world. Our excellent parochial grade school serves the families of our parish and the surrounding area.
We now have more than 80 active ministries that serve our parish and our local community. As a parish community we strive to become disciples of Christ by spreading His love and His church to others.
We believe that each of us has been given the gifts that we need to carry out Christ’s plan for us. We acknowledge that we need to belong to a community where we can and should use those gifts. We become stewards of God’s grace by giving back to Him in gratitude for all He has done for us.
When we “Believe, Belong, Become“ we can live as His hands and feet in our community, growing as His disciples.
