Overview

Entrusted to the Pallottine Priests and Brothers by the Archbishop of Baltimore in 1917, the St. Jude Shrine is the center of St. Jude Devotions in the United States. St. Jude Thaddeus has been dubbed "The Forgotten Saint" due to the actions of Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus. Unlike Judas Iscariot, St. Jude Thaddeus died a martyr and his remains are in the great basilica of St. Peter in Rome. He is considered the patron saint for those in dire need. After an increase of St. Jude Devotions following WWII, the Pallottines established regular novena services to honor the saint. Call the shrine for timings. The popularity of the shrine has skyrocketed, attracting both local and nationwide parishioners.
