Centennial Opening Mass this Sunday

The Grotto kicks off its Centennial Celebration this weekend as we begin the 100th year of the historic shrine.

The 100th Anniversary will feature a year’s worth of celebrations, including concerts, new exhibits, special events and community service.

The celebration begins this Sunday, Sept. 17, the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, with a Centennial Opening Mass at noon in The Grotto Plaza. Father Eugene Smith, OSM, Prior Provincial of the Order of Servants of Mary, the Friars who minister at The Grotto, will preside.

All are invited to join in celebrating throughout the upcoming year. For more information about the Centennial and how you can support The Grotto, pleae contact events@thegrotto.org.

Oh, Lord, my God, as a Catholic Christian a crucifix is everywhere on my rosary, in my home, and above the altar in my church. Perhaps that is why we need to celebrate the Exultation of the Holy Cross today, to focus on the great sacrifice Christ made for the love of us. 

Give me the grace today, Lord, to reflect on the sacrifice He made for love of us sinners, to suffer torture, pain, and death. This day Lord, I praise and praise you for your sacrifice for me, one I do not deserve or could ever repay. 

Jesus, may every cross I see remind me of your sacrifice and all you have done for me. For by your cross you have redeemed the world. Amen.

Look up at the beautiful Calvary Statue, which is the first thing you will see upon entering The Grotto's parking lot.
