Normlly a Christian school or any Christian Institution for that matter, is named after a particular saint , as its patron saint. This is done not only to place the school or the institution under the special patronage and protection of that particular saint, but also to realize, in the institution concerned, the special qualities and virtues of the patron saint.
St. Jude the patron saint of our school, was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus Christ. When Jesus began his public life here on earth, he gathered a selected group of disciples to know him and live with him, so that after his death and resurrection the disciples could go out into the whole world spreading his message of love and forgiveness.
The disciples were men chosen by Jesus himself. They were inspired by his teachings that god is a loving Father who cares for every human being as his own child, ready to forgive everyone, provided one realizes his/her sinfulness and is willing to forgive others, By his own example of humble service, when he washed the feet of his disciples, jesus taught then that he had come not to be served but to serve, and that his followers must render of loving service to one and all.
