Parish hosts seminarian endowment Mass, brunch

PEARL – St. Jude Parish hosted a Mass and brunch to raise money for the Catholic Extension Seminarian Education Endowment Saturday, Dec. 12.
The Knights of Columbus from Flowood St. Paul provided the food, serving a barbecue-and-biscuit-based ‘southern’ eggs benedict.
More than two dozen people attended. If the Office of Vocations can top out donations at $75,000 by the end of the year, Catholic Extension will add another $25,000 to the endowment.
Contact Father Matthew Simmons, Vocations Director at or Aad DeLange, CFO for the diocese, to donate. Donations must be received by Dec. 31.
