Arm of St. Jude Relic Veneration

Arm of St. Jude Relic Veneration at MOQ – Tuesday, March 5th

Veneration 2 pm to 10 pm

Special Mass at 7 pm

From September 2023 to May 2024, the arm of Saint Jude Thaddeus, venerated in Rome from ancient times, will be on pilgrimage in the United States, making stops in 100 cities. One of the Church’s most beloved saints, Saint Jude is the one to whom people turn when they are desperate and have tried everything else.  When things seem lost or unbearable—when they seem hopeless—Saint Jude is the one to whom people often turn.

Come and experience his transformative presence. The relic will be displayed for veneration at Mary Our Queen on Tuesday, March 5 from 2 pm to 10 pm with a special Mass in honor of St. Jude at 7 pm.
