CANCELLED: St. Jude PilgrimageOctober 24, 2020
Due to the ongoing COVID crisis this year’s St. Jude Pilgrimage is cancelled. Guidance on safer social interactions during the pandemic in the City and County of San Francisco limits the number of people permitted at public gatherings. As we all work to reopen San Francisco and our places of worship, we must do what we can for one another. May we together look forward to the St. Jude Pilgrimage next year on October 23, 2021!
We, the Dominican Friars of St. Dominic’s Church, home of the Shrine, continue to offer prayers for your intentions. Though still partially closed because of the pandemic, the Shrine is very much open, spiritually – for your prayer intercessions, votive candle requests, and Mass intentions. The Dominican Friars will still observe the Novena intentions and lead us all digitally in prayers directed to St. Jude. Currently, all Mass intentions are celebrated at the daily morning Mass, which is live-streamed: 8:00 a.m. Mon-Fri, 9:00 a.m. Sat, and 9:30 a.m. Sun. The recitation of the Holy Rosary with the Dominican Friars will also follow the 5:00 p.m. streaming of Evening Prayer.
Until we can again gather as a worshiping community, join us in our upcoming Novena, October 20-28, as we entrust our intentions to the intercessory power of St. Jude for our world desperately in need of the grace of Jesus our Lord!
