St. Jude Religious Stores Celebrate 45 Years of Selling Catholic Religious Goods

BENSALEM, PA--(Marketwire - January 12, 2010) - St. Jude Religious Stores, the world's most complete religious goods provider, is thrilled to announce they are celebrating 45 years of business in 2010.

The first St. Jude Religious Store was established in 1965 after founder Russell L. Davis was cured of tuberculosis (then a fatal disease) after praying to St. Jude. So moved by the experience, Davis founded the first store in tribute to the patron saint of lost causes, which he operated until his death in 1981. Four years later Davis' son Russ took the reins with his wife Debbie, and today they operate four St. Jude Religious Stores in Pennsylvania along with an online version of their stores.

"We take great pride in what we do and are very excited to meet this milestone," said Russ Davis. "As more people become religious or return to their faith each year, we take joy in the idea that we are helping them navigate through the rough waters of society with our religious goods."

St. Jude Religious Stores has one of the largest selections of Christian and Catholic religious goods, with an extensive array of church supplies, bibles, books, music, videos, clergy apparel and albs, Catholic statues, First Communion gifts and Catholic rosary choices. They recently released their 2010 Church Goods Catalog, which is the largest church goods catalog in the industry. They have over 7,000 items in-stock on their site and ready for immediate delivery.

St. Jude Religious Stores will be celebrating their 45th anniversary all year long, in-store and online, with a number of special sales and new items added to their wide range of inventory. For more information on the many religious goods available from their stores, please visit
