The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church 

Mission Statement

The Mary, Mother of the Church Shrine is dedicated to Mary as mother of the church and to all mothers.  The most important person on earth is a mother.

The purpose of the Shrine is to help promote a true appreciation of motherhood, the preciousness of life and the integrity of the family.

The outdoor shrine dedicated to Mary, Mother of the Church provides a beautiful  setting for outdoor Masses for the summer crowd.

The purpose of the Shrine is to show high regard for all mothers of the world.  All who come to the shrine are invited to honor their mothers in a special way by having their names engraved on the Mothers’ Wall of Life, the  polished black granite that surrounds the sculpture of Mary.  The Masses and prayers offered at the Shrine are offered for all Mothers on the Wall. 

Outdoor Masses are offered at the Shrine every weekend during the summer on Saturday 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Walk the last hours of Christ’s life following the footsteps along the Stations of the Cross.

Enjoy the Avenue of the Flags.  Over 100 flags were originally given by visitors to the Shrine from other countries or by parishioners in remembrance of their heritage.  Today, they can be adopted.

Take in the beauty of the fountains, flowers and the monuments throughout the grounds while enjoying the beautiful music of the clarion bells.

Tours are available, guests greeted with soft drinks and coffee.
