Welcome dear pilgrim!


A warm welcome to the National Shrine of Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, is served by the Carmelite friars at Faversham, Kent. The shrine adjoins the parish church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, also served by the friars. Since 1955, the shrine has been a centre of devotion to Saint Jude in the UK. Through the contributions of those devoted to the Apostle, we have supported the presence and ministries of the Carmelite Friars in Great Britain, and the great work of the missions around the world.
