Fr. Jude was born in Downers Grove, IL, on October 4, 1933 to the late Joseph and Teresa Randall. David Randall came to St. Procopius Academy in 1947. Given the monastic name of Jude, he entered the monastic novitiate following his sophomore year at St. Procopius College and professed his monastic vows on June 27, 1954. Father Jude and Benny, his faithful dog, were a constant presence at Benet events until his retirement in 2012. Fr. Jude is survived by his monastic community, his sister, Sister Dorothy Randall, C.S.J., of LaGrange, IL, and his beloved Miller cousins. In memoriam of Fr. Jude, a lighted candle burns in front of a crucifix in the abbey refectory. On Monday, January 11, 2021, the Abbot and Community will receive his body and process to the Abbey Church where they will keep a vigil. The monks will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial on Tuesday, January 12, and proceed to the abbey cemetery on the grounds of Benedictine University. Due to COVID-19 protocols, the liturgies will be for the monastic community only. Please remember Father Jude in your prayers. Arrangements by Brian Powell Funeral Directors of Hinsdale.
