The BEC of St Jude covers the following areas:
 
  • Jalan Setiajasa 1 – 5
  • Jalan Setiabistari 1 – 4
  • Lorong Setiabistari

 

We were initially with St. Joseph’s BEC in Medan Damansara which was formed with some 45 families in 1980.  Archbishop Dominic Vendargon, while on a visit in 1984, suggested a split as he felt the, then, Medan BEC was too large.

 

St. Jude’s BEC was then inaugurated in early 1984.   We have 24 families, 22 being Seniors and some 47 members.  There are 8 retiree families.  Generally some 7 to 12 members attend the meetings.

 

If you would like to become a member of this BEC, you can contact the Coordinator via the Parish Office at 03 2078 1876.
