The VISION to Grow and Restore

The VISION to Grow and Restore

We know that the National Shrine Grotto is a special place to you as it is to us!

It’s a part of you and uniquely yours because you have experienced that this mountain is blessed with the presence of the Blessed Mother in a very special and tangible way.

Mount Saint Mary’s Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is a National and Marian Shrine to which 400,000 pilgrims flock every year. This number continues to grow annually.

For whatever reason pilgrims have for visiting, each is inevitably touched by one thing, the unique intercessory power of Our Blessed Mother Mary to Our Lord, Jesus Christ. The National Shrine Grotto is a special and holy place of spiritual repair and inner peace.

On the 60th Anniversary of receiving the title of national shrine, we have embarked on a master plan to preserve the serenity of these holy grounds and to grow as a place of prayer and consolation through restoration and growth. We invite you to become a special part of this endeavor!

Donors should be advised that the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes will reserve the right to use any remaining balance of the restricted donation, after all expenses of the memorial item are paid, to be used as unrestricted funds.
