The Giving Machine

Are you purchasing items online? If so, you could help raise money for the National Shrine of Saint Jude and the Order of Carmelites every time you make a purchase – at no cost to you! All you need to do is sign up to our Giving Machine page, here, and add the National Shrine of Saint Jude as one of your beneficiaries.

Or, alternatively, you can send us an email to, and we'll do it for you!

You can then shop via the Giving Machine at any of the 400+ top on-line shops who have teamed up with them. Each of those shops then gives a donation to the Shrine, so we can support the Carmelites for many years to come. All those who join up with the Giving Machine and add the Shrine will be entered into a draw to win some gifts from the Shrine. Thank you

THANK YOU to our 50 friends who have already signed up!

Photo of the Month - June 2017

Our photo of the month is from the Shrine Information Centre situated in the grounds of the Shrine. Pictured is the statue of Saint Jude by Adam Kossowski surrounded by letters of congratulations to the Shrine on its Diamond Jubilee from Buckingham Palace, the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, the then Mayor of Faversham, and the Prior General of the Carmelite Order in Rome. Underneath the statue is a photo of our VIPs at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
