Annual Mass for Benefactors

National Shrine of St. Jude Mass for Benefactors

Each year the National Shrine of St. Jude gives thanks to all St. Jude devotees who make our ministries of hope and healing at the National Shrine of St. Jude possible with a special Mass for Benefactors.

In thanks for your generosity of prayer for us and your support for our ministries – including the National Shrine of St. Jude – we will honor you in our annual Mass for Benefactors at the National Shrine on Sunday, July 21st, 2024 at 10:30 a.m. CDT.

This is an extremely special Mass for us at the Shrine; it is our opportunity to more formally celebrate you and to ask God to bless you always. We invite you to join us by sending your intentions to be remembered during the Mass for Benefactors.

We'll add your name to our Beacon of Hope book

When we receive your special intentions for this Mass, we will place your name in our Beacon of Hope book. The names in the book will be recognized and offered as a gift during the Mass. Your intentions, as always, will be placed at the altar of St. Jude and prayed for during the Mass.

We will also be lighting a Special Benefactor Candle for all the petitions and special intentions received. This candle will burn bright during this special Mass as a simple representation of our often complex prayers to St. Jude.

If you cannot gather with us in person for this year's Mass for Benefactors, you can still experience the blessings of the Mass by joining us on our Facebook or YouTube pages on July 21st at 10:30 a.m. CDT to view a live-stream of the Mass for Benefactors. You can also visit our YouTube channel to view last year's Mass for Benefactors or any of our other prayer videos.
