St Jude Church


St. Jude is a Roman Catholic Parish in East Derby. On September 24, 1961, Archbishop Henry J. O'Brien appointed Father Robert G. Keating founding pastor of St. Jude in East Derby. The Marcucio family, members of the St. Mary community until that time, had sold the new parish a 16-acre tract atop Sentinel Hill. A garage on the property was soon renovated for use as a daily chapel. Four days later the first Sunday Mass was celebrated at the Bradley School. Groundbreaking for a new church occurred on May 20 in a ceremony conducted by the pastor and Monsignor John H. Quinn of St. Mary. On May 4, 1963, Archbishop O'Brien dedicated St. Jude Church. St. Jude has been serving Derby ever since.
