Thank you for visiting this modern preaching tool we call the internet. And, welcome to the home pages of the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus. Please take a moment to discover the ways you can partner with us: with your prayers; through devotion to the Novenas we will celebrate together; and by sharing your resources to help sustain this nearly 100-year-old ministry – all contained in these pages.
When St. Dominic founded the Order of Preachers, I doubt he envisioned today’s internet. He did, however, know that the important work of preaching the Gospel would take more than the few men and women who followed him 800 years ago in 1216. He also knew that it would take additional resources contributed by others to achieve the daunting task of spreading the Gospel to the ends of the earth.
While we won’t ask you to follow us to the ends of the earth, we do ask for your help as we teach and preach this ministry of the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus across the heartland of America. Your spiritual and financial support is critical to our work as we celebrate Novenas to St. Jude several times a year at a growing number of locations within the Province.
The following pages highlight the many ways you can support the work of the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus. Your prayers for others and your own intentions will quickly be shared by all who visit the Shrine – in person and online. Your growing understanding of the life of St. Jude Thaddeus and the many good works of the Dominican friars of the Province of St. Albert the Great will be deeply nourished as you peruse these pages.
Your generous gifts to the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude, so convenient through the web and our Support Us pages, will help to sustain this ministry and many others of the Province. In addition, please consider supporting us to through Planned Giving and Estate gifts. We rely on your assistance and ask that you join us as an important part of this ministry.
Nothing we do happens without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the dedication, love, and fortitude of our Dominican Friars and you, our supporters. You play a critically important role in the Ministries of the Shrine. Our outreach would simply not be possible without you as our partners. We ask you to please pray with us and for us and to support our collective work as best you can. We assure you, what you give will be put toward the most noble work of preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Thank you most sincerely for your generosity and God bless you for sharing.
