Renovation blessing ceremony held at St. Jude Parish Sunday

South Bend's Saint Jude Parish is expanding, giving parishioners more room to learn and worship.

Members of the parish attended a renovation blessing ceremony earlier Sunday. Bishop Kevin Rhoades was on hand for Sunday’s events.

The renovations include new classrooms, offices and a larger gathering area, plus improvements to the sanctuary and school space.

“I think it's going to be a really neat opportunity for the south side of town to see a beautiful catholic school and church that reflects the wonderful people we already have in this community,” says Stephen Donndelinger the principal at St. Jude Catholic School

$3.2 million of Saint Jude's $3.9 million goal has been raised or pledged since the beginning of last year.
