Societies of Prayer at the National Shrine of Saint Jude

Before the Second World War, these three ‘Societies of Prayer’ were established. The Societies continue to exist at the Shrine, and are a very popular way for people to express their faith, participate in our Carmelite devotions, and support our ministry of service to God’s people.

Members of the three societies are enrolled for a year, during which time a Mass is celebrated every month for their spiritual and temporal welfare. It is possible to enrol yourself and others in any or all of the Societies, and whilst there is no set fee, a donation of £1.50 (or more) per person is suggested. This money supports the Carmelite brothers and our work to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in Britain and beyond. These societies are separate from the Guild of Saint Jude.

The subscription for each Society is suggested as £1.50 per year. Each person will receive a membership card.

You might like to consider enrolling yourself, family or friends in one or all three of the Societies of Prayer at Faversham. If you would like to enrol yourself and/or others, please send a list of names and addresses, along with your donation (by cheque made payable to Carmelite Friars) to:

Carmelite Friars
P.O. Box 140
ME20 7SJ

Or, you can join on-line, here.
