3 May 9, 2010 Page Three St. Jude the Apostle Parish has been extremely blessed to have these necessary repairs done to our parish properties. In the past 18 months we have had the following repair work done: 1. The church, rectory, parish office, school office, convent, the rectory and convent garages, and part of the school, have had complete roofs replaced. 2. The lintels above the church windows have been replaced and the bulkhead cement blocks above the windows, disassembled and rebuilt. 3. The water damage in the interior of the church has been repaired and repainted. 4. The choir loft has been repaired, the carpeting replaced, and the windows in the choir loft have been re-glazed and the frames repainted. 5. The sacristy has been completely rebuilt including new oak cabinets, new carpeting, and painting. 6. The brick on the outside of the church has been cleaned and tuckpointed where necessary. 7. Water damage to the school and outside church entrances has been repaired. All of the above repairs have been paid for by our insurance and through the grant from the Archdiocese of Chicago. What a Blessing! As you may or may not know there has been water leaking in the front of the church for quite some time. We originally thought that the water was coming from the leaky roof, but once the roof was repaired we discovered water coming into the church from the two windows located in the Southeast and Southwest corners of the church. The glazing around each panel in the windows has pulled away from the frames which is allowing water to pour into the church and there are pieces of glass that have completely fallen out of the windows. The water has caused damage to the walls and the oak paneling next to the windows. Before we can repair the damage to the walls we must first make repairs to the Stained Glass windows. Continued on next page.

4 Page Four May 9, 2010 This past April 28 th, Fr. Ignatius and the building committee met with contractors, who removed, cleaned, resealed, and re-glazed one of the 21 panels in the window in the Southwest corner of the church. It was determined that all of the panels in both windows need to be removed, and repaired in the same way as this sample panel. The windows that are missing pieces of glass need to be removed and sent to Daprato Rigali Studios to have the glass replaced and the panel repaired. The cost of the repair to the windows will be $21, We do not have the money to pay for this, but it is critical that we have them repaired in order to prevent additional damage to the adjacent walls and stop the deterioration of the windows. We are working out the details on how to raise the money. The insurance will cover the repair to the walls, but it will not cover the repair of the windows, which are such an Inspirational part of our Worship Experience. There are a total of 42 panels in the front two windows that need to be repaired. It is our hope to begin the work by the second week of June. Once finished, this will complete the structural repairs to the interior of our church and we can begin to address other needs within the parish. Our windows are a significant part of St. Jude Parish Community. The front two windows represent our Proclamation of Faith which we proclaim after the Consecration of the Eucharist during mass. The theme of the window to the East is Christ has Died and the window to the West is Christ Will Come Again. During this Easter Season we are reminded of Our Lord Jesus Christ s gift of redemption for all of us who believe. Christ has Died, and Christ Will Come Again! Our windows dramatically express this fundamental principle of our Christian Faith. There will be additional information and updates. There will also be more information in the bulletin in the next few weeks. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak with any member of our building committee. May God continue to be with you and bless you. St. Jude the Apostle Building Committee, Ron Bordenaro Phil Pikosz Deacon Tim Springer Fr. Ignatius Anaele

6 Page Six May 9, 2010 THE WORKINGS OF THE SPIRIT There s a good chance that you re reading this bulletin article because you went to church for Sunday Mass. With any luck (even if it s the Saturday Mass of anticipation), the sun is shining outside. If it s early Sunday morning, perhaps you still saw the moon in the sky as you were on your way to celebrate the Eucharist. Church, sun, moon. Stable and staple parts of our lives. But today we hear of a place, the place of our Christian destiny the new and heavenly Jerusalem where there is no temple, no sun, no moon. All of these will be replaced by the Lamb of God: Jesus Christ crucified, dead, buried, and risen from the dead! Day by day, week by week, we will still have, and we need, the sun and moon, and the Lord s house on earth to offer our worship. But even while we enjoy the celestial luminaries and offer our praise to the Lamb, we keep our gaze focused on that time and place when all light will be eclipsed by the light of Christ s eternal glory, and we will join the angels and saints in the temple that is God, as we continue to sing our ceaseless praise in the power of the Spirit.

7 May 9, 2010 Page Seven ON VITRIOL PUSHING 2:00 AM, AND MOTHER S DAY 2010 by John B. Reynolds Last October, I did something I d never done before: I took part in a prayer vigil outside a facility that provides abortions. Rich, a friend from the parish and a past president of our Holy Name Society, said that he d be going to the local clinic at 1:00 AM for one hour on an upcoming Sunday in support of the national Forty Days for Life movement, and he asked if anyone wanted to go along. First I said no, but the no nagged at me. For one thing, I didn t think Rich had found any other takers and it didn t seem right to send him solo. For two things, I put myself--albeit quietly--on the pro-life side of the abortion debate. Was it my time to speak up by showing up? Come the night, I called Rich to tell him that I d be joining him, and he seemed glad for the news. We arrived at the clinic on time, and the people we were relieving were definitely glad for the news. With us being there, they got to go home, after all, while we had an hour ahead of us on a chilly night with drizzle off and on. Rich and I chatted briefly about the Forty Days movement. He stressed that prayer for the conversion of hearts of the pro-abortion set was elemental to the cause. Especially, I figured, when those hearts were beating in the chests of women intending very soon to abort their own sons or daughters. I told Rich I didn t know anyone touched by abortion. He said I might but just didn t realize it. We kept to our own thoughts for a while, and then at 1:30 or so, we prayed the rosary together, hoping that all those Hail Mary s would find their way home. Shortly after we d finished, two young women in a van drove by, and as I told Rich later, I had not in my entire life been the object of such a vitriolic outburst. The women--i put them in their early twenties--were screaming obscenities at us for doing what we were doing, for (apparently) just being there. Call me naïve, but I never thought that two guys sitting alone and praying in the dampness at nearly 2:00 AM could generate so much hatred in the heart, in the mind, and on the lips of anybody, regardless of the issue at hand. I cannot recall all of their explosive language, but Get a life! (expletives deleted) still rings in my ears. I was stunned at the unprovoked attack--not to mention a little frightened--and I was very glad that neither of us was there alone. Before the night was through, I told Rich that I already had my Mother s Day column nailed down, and over five months later, here it is. The women didn t return, but by 2:00 AM, our relief showed up: a young mom and her husband. She said that someone--a family member, I think--was home watching her children so that she could come out for an hour. She thanked us for being there, for joining in the celebration of life that was at the heart of the Forty Days movement. The contrast between the young women in the van and the young woman settling in for her one-hour vigil was profound. Get a life! the former screamed at Rich and me. Essentially, it was our very prayer that night, and today especially, the irony almost brings me to tears. Happy Mother s Day. Rev. Ignatius I. Anaele, Pastor Rev. John J.
