VIENNA - JULY 3: Paint of apostle Saint Jude Thaddeus from side chapel of Schottenkirche church on July 3, 2013 in Vienna.

Over the centuries, millions of faithful Christians, in the face of hopeless causes, have turned to St. Jude for intercession. Known as the apostle of the impossible, St. Jude is the patron saint of lost causes. Also

known as Thaddeus, St. Jude was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, and the relics of his forearm have been carefully preserved and venerated throughout the ages.

On September 25, the relic of St. Jude will make its way to St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Sioux Falls. Public veneration will begin at 1 p.m. and continue until 10 p.m. Mass will be offered in honor of St. Jude at 7 p.m.

This is a unique opportunity to enter into prayer in the midst of a relic of a great apostle. Well-documented miracles and answered prayers throughout the history of the Church prove that St. Jude never ceases to intercede with our Lord for those who are in hopeless situations. The relic tour is part of the Treasures of the Church ministry run by Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross. For more information, visit apostleoftheimpossible.com.
