Solemn Novena to St. Jude

February 3rd - 11th

As people of faith, we know we are never alone. The challenges vary—with some days heavier than others—but our devotion to St. Jude reminds us to open ourselves to inspiration and hope. This devotion also reminds us that for God, nothing is impossible.

Take part in our first Solemn Novena of the year, February 3rd–11th, at the National Shrine of St. Jude. You can join us by sending your special intentions and we will deliver them to the altar of St. Jude, where they will be remembered in the Masses and prayers of the Claretians throughout all the days of the Novena.

The National Shrine of St. Jude is located at 3200 E. 91st St. Chicago, IL 60617.

Novena services are held daily at 5:30 p.m. except on Sundays at 3 p.m. During the nine days of the Novena, we will remember your petitions in prayer to St. Jude, asking him to intercede on behalf of you, your family, and your friends for God’s healing.

May your year ahead be blessed in many special ways, and may you continue to find hope and help for life’s challenges through St. Jude.
