Welcome to the first blog post from the National Shrine of Saint Jude in Faversham, Kent. The Shrine in Faversham in Kent, England, is served by the Carmelite Friars. A major centre of pilgrimage and prayer, it attracts thousands of pilgrims every year, especially around the feast of St. Jude on 28th October.

Over time, we'll add news items or messages from the Shrine to this blog. The blog will include messages from our chaplain, Fr Piet Wijngaard, O.Carm; Matt Betts, Development Manager; and other members of the Shrine team.

We hope you enjoy the news and information on our blog.
