St. Jude, Pray for Us!

Pray with St. Jude during this holy season of Lent.

Welcome to the Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus

Dear Friends of St. Jude Thaddeus,

Welcome to the official website of the Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus (Patron of Difficult Cases) in the Province of St. Joseph the Worker (Nigeria and Ghana).

St. Jude Thaddeus has a world-wide reputation for interceding with God for us, especially for those whose cause seems hopeless. We feel privileged to spread devotion to St. Jude in Africa, especially through our Solemn Novena of Masses. When joining with us, you share in the Masses and prayers of all the Dominicans in Nigeria and the Dominicans in other countries of the world, who preach and teach the Good News to millions of people.

The home of our St. Jude Shrine is located at St. Dominic’s Parish in Yaba, Lagos. We are able to relate, through our website, testimonies of our members and friends, sharing our prayers and remembering each other in prayer as we continue our journey home. Please join us in prayer everyday of the week, especially during our six yearly Solemn Novenas and the Lenten Triduum of Masses.
