St. Jude Thaddeus Church

Davao City ChurchSt. Jude, known as Thaddaeus, was a brother of St. James the Less, and a relative of Our Saviour. St. Jude was one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus.  The Armenian Apostolic Church honors Thaddeus along with Saint Bartholomew as its patron saints. In theRoman Catholic Church, he is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes.

St. Jude Thaddeus Parish church in Davao is located at Malvar St., Davao City.  This church is famous among students and professionals.  The church is near Davao Doctor’s Hospital, University of Immaculate Conception College, AMA Davao, Davao Doctor’s College and etc.   Since St. Jude is known to be the patron saint of the hopeless, many people often come here to pray and ask help.  Majority of them are board exam takers and students.

This is how the church looks like before I left Davao. I took these pictures last October 2014.

When I was in college I often came here to attend mass.  I usually attended the 4:30 or 6:00 PM mass.  I liked coming here because of the environment. I used to see lots of students and young profs attending the church.  The church was not too big and it was not too crowded.  Today, the church is fully airconditioned unlike before.  That’s why the church goers nowadays are lucky.  The schedule above may not be updated so please check St. Jude’s schedule by calling (082) 227-5402.
