The Shrine of St. Jude is fortunate to be sponsored by the Dominican Friars of the Province of St. Albert the Great and to be able to invite those friars to celebrate your mass intentions. The money you donate for the celebration of Masses goes toward the training of young men to become Dominican Friars and the support of elderly friars who are no longer able to engage in active ministry. Thank you!
Offering or requesting a mass refers to the priest’s intention when he celebrates a Mass. The priest celebrates a Mass seeking to apply the spiritual benefits of the Holy Sacrifice of Jesus Christ to the requested intention. Read more…

Since this ministry of offering masses on behalf of the patrons of the Shrine of St. Jude involves many Friars throughout the Province, we cannot guarantee which Friar will celebrate each mass intention, the location of the chapel in which your mass is celebrated, or the date on which your mass is celebrated. What we can guarantee is that by accepting your donation we incur a sacred and solemn obligation to follow through and that no donation may be used to support our Friars until the corresponding mass intention has been fulfilled.
Suggested Donation: $10.00
