Saint Jude Celebrations in Faversham
28 October 2017 - 29 October 2017

The Carmelite Friars have the care of the National Shrine of Saint Jude at Faversham in Kent.

The feast of Saints Simon and Jude is celebrated on 28th October. The feast day is the highpoint of the calendar in Faversham, and hundreds of pilgrims come here in devotion to the Apostle. Although most come from London and the southeast, many others come from across Britain and even from abroad to celebrate this special time with God and with one another, in the company of the Carmelites.

The programme of activities during the feast includes regular celebrations of the Eucharist, blessings with the oil of St. Jude, and other devotions. During the celebrations there is a piety stall, a display of Carmelite books, and light refreshments available.

If you are bringing a group of more than 10 people to Faversham for any of the feast celebrations, it is very important that you please contact the Shrine Office in advance so that we have an idea of numbers and can let you know details for coach parking etc. For details of how to contact us please click here.
