Young Artist Honors Saint Jude

Young Artist Honors Saint Jude

This painting of St. Jude was made by five-year-old Paige Jude Shehab with the help of professional artist Kathleen Chisholm McInerney. As you may remember from past issues of the Saint Jude Messenger, Paige Jude has a fascinating story: when her mother Amy Shehab was expecting, she was told there was a high risk that her child would have a severe genetic illness. The Shehabs prayed fervently to Saint. Jude and by the grace of God Amy gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Paige Jude! Now little Paige Jude is carrying on the family devotion to the Shehabs’ patron saint in art.

Paige Jude applies the finishing touches.
