Feast of St Jude Oct 28 -1

Sundays at St Jude Chapel in Downtown Dallas in always festive; but today, there is an extra eagerness among the devotees. Today is the Feast of Saint Jude Thaddeus, the Chapel’s Patron Saint.

Aside from that fact, Saint Jude Chapel also made the front page of Dallas Morning News – “St. Jude Chapel provides oasis for downtown Dallas workers for four decades”. For a PR person, a small chapel nestled among the highrises of Downtown Dallas to get that kind of attention is a miracle. But, to a devotee of St Jude, that feat is not surprising. After all, Saint Jude is known as the “Patron Saint of desperate cases and lost causes” and miracles do happen.

And today, that miracle is apparent. The normal churchgoers swelled to almost double. Devotees from around the Metroplex and out-of-towners paid homage to their patron saint. They brought food and flowers. But, most of all, they brought their faith and devotion.

Celebrating St Jude Oct 27

October 28th is the feast of our Patron St. Jude. Because it falls on a Sunday, there would be a two-day celebration beginning Saturday, October 27th. The Saturday Anticipatory Mass (October 27) was held at its usual time of 4:00 PM with the blessing of the relic of Saint Jude as part of the celebration. A reception with light refreshments followed.
