The church was consecrated in the year 1966. Late Bishop FX Fenech was the first person who along with a few other co-religionists started offering prayers at the shrine. His example was followed by others. With the passage of time, the trickle of devotees built into a stream that continues to grow to this day.

Catholic devotees from far and near visit the shrine and pay their homage to the holy relic of the great saint.

A week-long festival is held every year on the shrine which culminates on 28th October. This day is celebrated as St. Jude’s Feast Day. A procession is also taken out to mark the occasion. The shrine, built in a blend of Christian and Hindu architectural style, draws not only Christians but also a large number of believers from other faiths.
