For the Visitor to St. Jude Shrine

 

  FROM TOURIST TO PILGRIM

Many people who tour the chapel are on a spiritual journey in search of a closer relationship with God. Instead of merely observing the features of the site they want to enter into an experience of the sacred. Here is a way to do it:

  1. Pause and evaluate your present relationship with God.
  2. Think of one blessing for which you are thankful and one favor you would like to receive. Put this in the form of a prayer.
  3. Consider one way you want your life to change for the better. Admission to the shrine is free of charge.

 

Those who wish to make a financial contribution may do the following:

  1. Purchase and light a candle as an expression of gratitude or petition.
  2. Place an offering in boxes for the poor or for the upkeep of the chapel.
  3.  Visit the gift shop for a memento.
