In 1965, Louis and Norma DiCocco founded the St. Jude Shop and opened their first religious goods retail store in Havertown, Pennsylvania. Almost five decades later, the DiCocco Family is proud to say that our original shop has grown to become the largest religious goods and church supply retailer in the United States. What distinguishes the St. Jude Shop among other retailers in the industry is the faith and tradition that is paramount in each of our endeavors.
We are owned and operated by 3 generations of DiCocco family members, who strive to uphold a company mission of "Serving Christ in the World" through our ministry-first and business-second approach. It is our unique goal to help enable you -- our customers -- to enjoy a greater relationship with God and each other through the products that we sell in our stores, our catalogs, and online. Hence, our work spans from not only completing major restoration projects in churches and cathedrals, but also building personal chapels in everyone's heart.
