Carmelites launch DVD on St Jude: Patron Saint of Desperate Cases

The National Shrine of Saint Jude in the Kent town of Faversham was established by the Carmelite Friars in the 1950s. Since then it has developed into a place of prayer and pilgrimage in honour of the Apostle known as the 'Patron Saint of Desperate Cases'.

To help promote devotion to Saint Jude, and to show pictures of his shrine to the many people around the world who have never been there but who keep in contact with the Carmelites through their newsletter, a DVD documentary has been produced.

Lasting approximately 25 minutes, the DVD shows pilgrims visiting the Shrine on the Feast Day of St Jude, interviews with friars, and the testimony of people whose lives have been touched by God's grace through the Apostle's intercession. Entitled The Shrine of St Jude, Faversham: A Place of Faith and Hope, the DVD is a beautiful and moving testimony to the power of prayer and God's love, shown through the communion of saints.

The DVD costs £7.95 including postage and packing within the European Union. To order a copy, please send a cheque made payable to Carmelite Friars, to:

Carmelite Friars, PO Box 140, Kent, ME20 7SJ, United Kingdom
