Thank You from Fr. Burke

Dear friends at St. Jude Parish,

 I thoroughly enjoyed my time with you the weekend of February 20-21 as we discussed how to become a missionary disciple. There is a wonderful spirit in your parish. I particularly would like to thank Fr. Basler for the invitation to be with you.

 I send out reflections on the daily Scriptures. If you would like to subscribe, please visit my blog at This includes our daily online rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

 Also, I am on Relevant Radio every Monday morning at 7:00am CST. You can listen online at or on the free Relevant Radio App.

 Here are some other things you can find on our Adult Formation website -

  • Be Formed – new 90-day discipleship experience starting May 9, 2021
  • Pilgrimages with Fr. Burke to the Holy Land, Italy and Oberammergau
  • Retreats for Adults – Be Healed, Silent retreats
  • School of Spiritual Direction in the Diocese of Joliet
  • Biblical Institute of the Diocese of Joliet

 My dream is that we can all work together: clergy, religious and lay faithful, to build up missionary disciples and fulfill the mission that Jesus gave us, “Go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28:19) Be assured of my prayers for all of you. Thank you once again for your generosity and hospitality.

 God bless,

 Fr. Burke
