With grateful hearts, we dedicate this pictorial history to the men and women who have faithfully labored in the Lord's vineyard at St. Jude: religious of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate, Redemptorists of St. Alphonsus Ligouri, Sisters of St. Mary of Namur, Deacons and lay volunteers of St. Jude Church. They sowed and cultivated the seeds of faith for this community. The fruits of their labors have nourished and sustained the Catholic Community of Sumter for over three-quarters of a century. For their years of devoted service to St. Jude we offer our thanks to these dedicated priests, sisters, deacons and lay volunteers. . .

..."And he gave some men as apostles, and some as prophets, and others again as evangelists, and others as pastors and teachers, thus fitting the saints for the ministry, for building up the body of Christ until we all become one in faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God."
