The St Jude's Catholic Church was opened on 17/8/1930.

(Mudgee Guardian 28 August 1930)  "ST. JUDES NEW CHURCH AT CAPERTEE THE OPENING SERVICE On Sunday August 17, St. Jude's new church, at Capertee was opened and blessed by Very Rev. T. A. Eviston who also celebrated Mass. The Rev. Father Power, in an interesting address referred to the significance of the event that was taking place In Capertee that morning and thanked Mr A. Davidson for generously donating the land (two acres) on which the building was erected. The Sisters of the Good Samaritan's Convent, Kandos, were also thanked for a set of Stations of the Cross".

"Saint Jude's Church in Capertee is located at the northern end of the village on the Mudgee Road (Castlereagh Highway). A Station church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bathurst this simple chapel is still consecrated but is rarely used for religious services. The exterior is constructed of painted corrugated iron while the interior consists of a nave and porch. Light comes from coloured glass, Gothic style, windows. Despite its architectural simplicity this church appeals to many, especially Christians who like an unpretentious location for prayer and contemplation. This church is named in honour of the Apostle Saint Jude Thaddeus, the Catholic saint of lost causes.(Extract - See http://caperteeheritage.blogspot.com.au/2012/11/old-buildings-st-judes-church.html)
