Back in 1955, Carmelite friar, Fr. Elias Lynch, founded the Shrine for two reasons: first, because he was responding to the needs of the post-war generation who were looking for hope, and secondly because the Carmelite charism is so deeply rooted in the Word of God. It is therefore fitting that there is a place dedicated to Saint Jude – the Apostle of Hope. Both of Fr. Lynch’s initial reasons are still realities in 2024, and pilgrims find the Shrine to be a place of prayer, peace, and hope. Over the years, it has been called “a jewel” and also “a common meeting ground between Anglicans and Catholics”. All are welcome.
