If you cannot come to the Shrine, let the Shrine come to you!
Arranging a Mission or Special Event
While we have our own novenas and special events here, we are available to come to you as well! Whether for a one-hour talk, a full nine-day novena, or a specific retreat, please feel free to contact us, and we will see what we can arrange, whether on St. Jude, any other topic you might wish, or simply as a way to give your overworked parish priest a few days off.
Our friars are members of the Order of Preachers, and we were founded precisely as itinerant, that is, wandering preachers, going from parish to parish, even to the furthest missions, to preach the Good News. In a world lacking the light and love of Christ, the Order of Preachers is needed now more than ever, restoring a full, healthy devotional life to renew our faith in our parishes.
I have been visiting the Shrine for years since 2001. It brings comfort to many people.
