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, hear my prayer that I might have the grace to act on St. Paul's message to the Corinthians today, that having died with Christ in Baptism I might rise with him to new life. I can only do this with the help of your grace. And in today's Gospel of St. Luke, I am given his list of the beatitudes. A pathway to living in and with Christ. I ask this in the powerful name of Jesus, Our Lord. Amen.

Enjoy the tranquil sounds of the Peace Garden ponds.
