Reverend Jesudas Gudime, associate pastor

Father Jesudas Gudime was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Kadapa, India in 1997. Between 1997 – 2003 Father Gudime served the church of Kadapa as associate pastor of St. Mary’s Cathedral, assistant director of Sacred Heart Pastoral Centre and pastor of Sacred Heart Church. In 2003, Fr. Jesudas was sent to the Philippines to attend the East Asian Pastoral Institute (EAPI) in Quezon City, Manila, from which he received a certificate and diploma for his participation in an intensive program of study on the topic of “Preaching the Word”.

Upon his return to India, Fr. Jesudas was appointed Director of Evangelization for his region with a goal of establishing “Small Christian Communities” in an effort to help the local church become more self-reliant. Afterward, he served for three years as principal of Infant Jesus School and then as pastor of Our Lady of Holy Rosary Church, for which he was entrusted with the special task of building a new parish church, which he carried out with utmost care and diligence. The newly built church in honor of our Blessed Mother stands as an attraction to Christians and non-Christians alike.

In 2014, Fr. Jesudas moved on from Our Lady of Holy Rosary parish to serve a smaller parish so that he could focus on counselling skills and his studies in counselling and psychotherapy at Fountain College, Krishnagiri, India. On a personal note, Father Gudime’s father Samuel passed away in 2013 at the age of 80, and his mother Showramma passed away in 2018, also at the age of 80. His parents’ death came as a big shock to him as he loved them very much.  

In 2019, his bishop sent Father Jesudas to minister in the United States. The Archdiocese of Chicago appointed him associate pastor at St. John of the Cross. Today, Father Jesudas is especially excited to have been appointed to serve as associate pastor for the parish of Queen of All Saints Basilica.
