Honoring the Past, Building Our Future

A Message from the Shrine Director

Your support of the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows helps bring healing and hope to over one million pilgrims who visit us yearly.  With your help we continue to share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ while honoring our Blessed Virgin Mary who bore Christ for all of humanity.  Thank you.

The Oblates are committed to the ongoing vitality of the Shrine.  So in preparation for the  200th anniversary of the founding of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate and our focus on this Jubilee year, we begin a capital campaign to prepare us for our next generation of faithful pilgrims.  Resources gathered during this campaign will be a clarion call to present and future pilgrims, so that they too will find God’s deeply abiding presence here.

In the brochure you will find many ways we plan to improve the Shrine, but only with your help. Your prayers and financial support are critically important for the growth of our mission.

I ask you to consider a pledge to this Capital Campaign for the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows as we bring Christ’s healing power and faith-filled hope to our pilgrims now and in the future.
