Weekly Mass and novenas at the Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus, located inside St. Pius V church, are scheduled at noon and 6:30 p.m. on Thursdays.
The Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus is ministry of the Dominican Friars of the Province of St. Albert the Great, began on October 20, 1929. Every year, thousands of faithful from around the world send their petitions to the Shrine seeking the intercession of this Apostle, Martyr, and Saint. St. Jude inspires them in return and leads them to boldly proclaim, “Where there’s prayer there’s hope!”
St. Jude is often referred to as the ‘Patron of Hopeless Causes,’ perhaps a misleading title but sure testimony to the radical faith of God’s people. That there exists a patron saint for hopeless causes is a reflection of the Church’s firm belief that “Nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
St. John of the Cross said, “Souls receive from God as much as they hope for from him.” Our belief that God wants to give us good things grows tremendously when we take time to consider his almighty power and abundant goodness. For this reason and more, those who invoke St. Jude’s intercession do well to exercise their deep, abiding and tenacious hope in the Lord who loves us.
