Christmas 2018 at the National Shrine of St. Jude

Holidays & Events

St. Jude, my heart brims over with joy. The birth of Jesus brings the birth of hope to the world. May this child, the light of the world, be a light in the darkness of my life. God chose you, St. Jude, to companion the Christ child on earth. Fill my heart with the love that inspired you to proclaim His glory to all people. May Emmanuel, “God with us,” strengthen my faith, hope, and devotion with you, St. Jude, and in my Savior, bearer of light and love at Christmas and always. Amen.

Enjoy these photos of the National Shrine and Our Lady of Guadalupe parish dressed for the holiday celebration.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
