About Us

Welcome to Sts. Simon & Jude Parish! Our Church has been located in the heart of Gravesend since 1897. We are not just a parish, we are a parish family that welcomes all, encourages spiritual growth, social involvement and evangelical outreach to people of all ages. We are a vibrant parish with a devoted community. Come and see what we are all about. All are invited to join us in the celebration of Mass!

Our Mission:
Sts. Simon & Jude Parish is a Roman Catholic community striving to fulfill the mission of Christ in His Church through prayer, sacrament and service. Obedient to the word of God, we aspire to create a spirit filled atmosphere of faith, unity and love among our members. Instructed by the Gospels, and with Christian charity, we strive to reach out to and care for those in need. By fostering the full participation of our members in the worship and ministries of the church, Sts. Simon & Jude Parish seeks to establish a committed center for spiritual growth, social involvement and evangelical outreach to people of all ages in our community.
