Plan a Pilgrimage to Sorrowful Mother Shrine

Are you looking for a special, awe-inspiring place to visit? A place to make a private day of reflection? A pilgrimage for a group? Plan now to visit this holy and historic shrine dedicated to the Sorrowful Mother.

Paved walkways winding among tall and colorful trees lead to Stations of the Cross and replicas of Lourdes and the Sepulchre Grotto - favorite places of prayer and meditation - and to other grottos. One can see various wildlife as well - turkeys, deer, squirrels and birds.

Your time of prayer may include, confession, our morning Mass, afternoon devotions, spending quiet time before our Eucharistic Lord during Eucharistic Adoration held monthly on the first Sunday of the month beginning after the 11:00 AM Mass or in quiet meditation before one of the many grottos throughout the grounds.

During the Pilgrim Season, beginning on Divine Mercy Sunday through the last Sunday of October, at 2:30 PM each Sunday we have Rosary, Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Blessing of Religious Articles and Blessing with the Relic of the True Cross and its veneration by those present individually.

The Shrine cafeteria is available any day of the week for groups of 15 or more. For reservations call 419-483-3435, ext. 101.

At the present time, the Sorrowful Mother Shrine has no overnight accommodations for overnight retreats. We are able to give a Day of Reflection, a Day of Recollection.
