The Shrine of St. Jude at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Chicago

Solemn Novena to St. Jude

April 24th - May 2nd

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 the Spring Solemn Novena, April 24th—May 2nd, 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.

During this time when it is difficult to physically come together to celebrate the Novena, you will still be able to participate virtually through our website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel. Videos of the Novena services will be available on our website Monday - Saturday at 5:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. CST. Use the Printable Novena Program Booklet below to follow along and join us for daily Novena services from the National Shrine of St. Jude in Chicago.

At times like this, many can lose hope and become distracted by wondering what lies ahead. With a sense of encouragement guiding us in difficult times however, we’re better able to stay positive, to not lose heart, and to give encouragement to others.

Together, let us spread the hope of St. Jude in a world that needs it more by the day.
