Whilst this Shrine is well known, it is reached in a quiet road, the welcome is warm and there is a great "presence" at the Shrine. The Parish Church is also worth a look.

Many Christians visit the shine (especialy those originating from India) and find a place of peace and recollection. I visit occasionaly and share in the calm that this little room offers. However, St Jude never visited this place and non-Christians may find it corny and...More

Lovely little church with the shrine below. It was so quiet and peaceful that I found it therapeutic. I am so glad I made the journey to this little church and shrine.

This shrine isn't easy to find, and the carpark even more so. We like churches, so were looking forward to this shrine, but found no real atmosphere there, and the paintings were disappointing. Didn't really hit the spot that St Mary of Charity church did.

It is in a quiet but accessible part of Faversham and connected to a beautiful Church. It is looked after by the Carmelites who are very welcoming. There are different events through the year which you can discover from their website.
