The National Shrine of St. Jude & the St. Jude League

Founded in 1929 by the Claretian Missionaries, the National Shrine of St. Jude and the St. Jude League bring together hundreds of thousands of devotees in a community of prayer and hope.

The faithful around the world send the Claretians their special intentions and stories of hope. They also flock to Solemn Novenas to St. Jude, which take place five times each year at the National Shrine of St. Jude in the South Chicago neighborhood of Chicago.

We thank you for your continued devotion to St. Jude, the patron saint of difficult cases, and for joining with us in our unending prayer: St. Jude, pray for us!
