About St. Jude Chapel

Once A Dream — Now A Reality

Saint Jude Chapel located in the heart of downtown Dallas, has been serving in ministry to the business community and the Diocese of Dallas at large for 45 years.

Dedicated on September 15, 1968, the chapel is the full realization of a dream nurtured in the loving hearts of Rev. Arthur C. Hughes and friends for more than a quarter of a century.

A quiet, peaceful, meditative environment in the presence of Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Stained glass windows are provided with illuminated panels depicting the Stations of the Cross. The illuminated panels create an illusion of sunlight, and the chapel takes on a breadth greater than its actual dimensions. The cathedral sweep of the chapel ceiling is crowned with a stained glass skylight.

People come and go at will throughout the day. Office workers and guests of the downtown hotels hurry to attend the daily Masses and confessions.

The Pastoral Staff is on hand to counsel, assist and console, nurturing the faithful with the Sacrament of Penance, the Holy Eucharist, and Anointing of the Sick. Generous hearted, dedicated volunteers are present to answer telephones, keep records, set up appointments and assist those seeking information.


Saint Jude Chapel depends entirely on your generous spiritual and financial support for the growth and success of our missions and ministries. Our mission is to serve the sacramental and spiritual needs of the Christian Faithful who live and work in Downtown Dallas and throughout the Metroplex, as well as the countless visitors in our area. We offer daily and weekend Masses, daily Confessions (Reconciliation), Bible studies, and many other spiritual devotions and activities.
