About St. Jude Thaddeus Church

St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church had its earliest beginnings in the missionary labors of pioneer Jesuits.  Mass was offered for the first time in Havre by Father Monroe on an improvised altar in a Great Northern Railway section house in 1887.  The first church was built in 1894 and later destroyed in the 1898 tornado that struck Havre.  The new church was finished in 1900.  St. Jude Thaddeus Church became a parish with a resident priest in July of 1903, after the people of Havre petitioned Bishop Brondel.    As the town continued to grow a more central location for the church became necessary.  On September 11, 1914, the current property was purchased.  Hill County purchased the former church property for the County Courthouse.  During the summer of 1916, Mass was held in the historical portion of the St. Jude Thaddeus school building.  The current church was built in 1924 in the Spanish mission style.

Sisters of San Francis of Penance and Christian Charity arrived in September of 1911 to establish the Sacred Heart Catholic Hospital, which was opened in December of 1911.   This same group of religious sisters also staffed St. Jude Thaddeus School from 1926 to 1984.   1994 marked the end of an era with the Jesuits turning the parish over to the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings.  The first diocesan priests were Father Robert Grosch and Father Patrick Zabrocki.  In 2015, St. Jude Thaddeus Church is home to 385 registered families.
