The National Shrine of Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, which was founded in 1955 is served by the Carmelite friars. Since the 1950s thousands of pilgrims have come to Faversham from all over the world to visit and pray at our little shrine to Saint Jude. It has become sacred with the prayers of the many pilgrims who have come here, and who tell movingly of their encounters with God and with one another.
We hope that our shop can help us in the spreading of the Gospel, and will provide a sense of connectedness with the Shrine. Our shop includes a number of religious gifts and souvenirs connected to Saint Jude, but also to other important national saints and Carmelite saints.
