The Feast Day of St. Jude

Categories: Church,News,Prayer Requests,Stories

Dear Friend of St. Jude,

You are a dear and precious member of our St. Jude Shrine family, and I would like you to be part of our Celebration of the Feast of St. Jude.       

I invite you to attend one of the special Masses at the Nationwide Center of St. Jude Devotions in Baltimore beginning on October 16th and concluding on St. Jude’s Feast Day on October 28th.  

  • Sunday, October 16   Masses 8:00 a.m. 9:00 a.m. 11:30 a.m.
  • Saturday, October 22   Masses & Novena Services 7:45 a.m. 12:00 noon
  • Sunday, October 23  Masses & Novena Services 8:00 a.m. 9:00 a.m. 11:30 a.m.
  • Friday, October 28  Feast Day of St. Jude  Masses & Novena Services 7:00 a.m. 12:00 noon

If you are unable to attend any of the Masses, you can still be part of this important celebration by praying with us for the miraculous power of St. Jude to touch your life.

St. Jude’s promise to us is for comfort, healing, and hope whenever we turn to him. Through our faith in God and through St. Jude’s intercession, we find answers to our prayers, healing to ease our pain, and strength to meet the challenges of our lives. 

Please send us the needs and intentions that fill your heart. We will place them in the hands of St. Jude, and we know that he will help, as he has done for thousands from every corner of the world.

Every week we receive hundreds of testimonials – like the ones shown below – from people whose lives have been changed through St. Jude’s powerful intercession.

Through prayers and the intercession of St. Jude, my daughter-in-law, diagnosed with terminal cancer, has twice now had tumors removed and five new tumors disappear. We are now praying, along with many others, for the two new tumors on her liver to miraculously disappear. We are very thankful for the blessing she has received so far. I pray the Lord’s Will be done. – Anonymous

When my husband and I were newly married, we had terrible problems involving our families. I prayed to St. Jude to intercede for my marriage so that it would endure. St. Jude came through. Our marriage improved and has lasted for 60 years. Daily, I pray to St. Jude, and I always start my prayers thanking St. Jude for saving my marriage. – Josephine

Perhaps you know someone who could benefit from St. Jude’s incredible power. Maybe someone you love needs St. Jude for healing…or for help with an addiction. Or perhaps someone you know has given up hope on finding a job. Perhaps you are the one in need of hope or healing. Please don’t hesitate – send your intentions today. We are honored to pray for St. Jude’s help in bringing your prayer requests before God.

When you send your intentions, I hope you will include an offering of support for our Pallottine priests and brothers in their ministries to the poor around the world. Your gift will help to provide tangible aid, including food, shelter, medicine, clean water and education to the poor, along with the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

My prayer for you is that the kindness you have shared with our ministry will be abundantly returned to you. Please know that you can count on me to seek God’s hope and help on your behalf and for those you love and care about.

May St. Jude obtain for you every blessing of health and happiness.


 Wishing you the hope of St. Jude, 

Fr. Peter Sticco, S.A.C.
Novena Director

P.S. Please send your prayer requests along with your most generous gift today. I will make sure your prayer requests are remembered in the prayers, Novenas and Masses at our Shrine and in daily Mass that is celebrated on the tomb of St. Jude in the Vatican.
