Garden of Hope at the Shrine of Saint Jude

Wednesday, 18 August 2021

The Saint Jude Garden of Hope is a new project to create a garden behind the Shrine Office at the National Shrine of Saint Jude. The Apostle's National Shrine in Faversham, Kent, served by the Carmelite Friars. Those who wish to donate to this special project can do so, here.

Saint Jude is best known as the patron of "desperate" or "difficult" cases (a term used in preference to the older title of "hopeless" cases, since with God no situation is hopeless). To us, Saint Jude is the patron saint of hope in Jesus Christ. 

This new place will be a garden of hope. No matter how dark things may appear – there is always hope.

All those who donate will have their name listed in the garden.
