St. Jude Shrine is located in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland, and has been operated and staffed by the Pallottine Fathers and Brothers for over 100 years.  The Archbishop of Baltimore entrusted the Shrine to the Pallottines in 1917. Regular Novena Services were established around the outset of World War II, when devotion to St. Jude  reached remarkable proportions. At first the Novena Services attracted only the local parishioners, but in a short time it became a city-wide Center where people from all walks of life came to pray to St. Jude.

You may request a votive candle to be burned at the Shrine for your special intention or in thanksgiving for a favor received through St. Jude’s powerful intercession.  Your votive light will be a symbol of your love for and devotion to St. Jude and your intention to persevere in your prayers.
