By using this website, the Shrine of Saint Jude wishes to offer a space that will help people to pray, for themselves and for the people they love. We offer various online services (please click on the boxes below). The Carmelite friars will keep praying for you and please know that Saint Jude will stay with you - he is a friend to all of us and he is the Saint of Hope.
The Shrine was founded by Carmelite friar, Fr Elias Lynch, O.Carm: “..it all started because [we] reproduced a quarter of a million pictures of Saint Jude, with prayers in honour of Saint Jude, and sent them out broadcast to all who called on us….I got more than a surprise. I was caught in a tidal wave. People started sending in masses of thanksgiving to Saint Jude; donations to the Shrine of Saint Jude - which didn't exist...start dealing with a movement like that and you have got something on your hands [so] we decided to create a Shrine of Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr..”
The newsletter is sent out four times a year. Each Friday, we add a new reflection and prayer to help our friends through this Pandemic. Please click on the boxes below to find out more about this special place...
