About fifty years back there were only a few Christian families in Pakshikere and they were part of Kinnigoli parish. At that time, Rev. Fr. Jacob Lobo who had served as a secretary to the bishop was the parish priest of Kinnigoli Church. He was a man of vision and had the capacity to fulfil it. Prayer and devotion to Mary were his main strengths to accomplish his dreams. He saw the spiritual needs of these families of Pakshikere who were suffering on account of long distance to Kinnigoli. So in 1957, he thought of building a small Chapel there. But there was no place to build it. Then one of the parishioners came forward and donated 3.5acres of land for the church. Within a year construction got over. This was the beginning of St. Jude’s Shrine.This place is well known for exorcism and healing. People of different religious and faith come here asking for st. Jude’s intercession and their prayers get answered. people suffering from spiritual, physical, family and various other issues come here for counselling. There are so many miracles which are recorded in church archives and are continuously posted on the parish website. Many couples after continuous prayers and by st. Jude’s intercession is blessed with children. Hence this shrine not only looks after spiritual needs but also towards psychological needs.
