Welcome to the Catholic National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church

Remember our mothers in faith

Please join us in remembering all the women who have gone before us in faith: our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, friends, spiritual mothers and other women.

Give a forever gift to a mother in your life

Next engraving deadline: March 15, 2024

Have your loved one's name inscribed on our beloved Mothers’ Wall of Life! Every day we remember in prayer the more than 5,000 mothers from at least 44 states and five continents whose names have been engraved in the beautiful black granite walls.
New names received from now until March 15 will be engraved in April 2024, and a special unveiling ceremony will take place on Mother's Day 2024.

Do you or a loved one need prayer?

You’re not alone, we all need prayers! Please let us know how we can pray with you. Remember, God is with you and He delights when we lift our voices and give our worries over to Him. All prayer requests are placed in our chapel where they receive the benefits of individual prayers and prayers at Mass.

All are welcome at The Mothers' Shrine

Whether you are able to come to our beautiful Shrine in Laurie, or join us online, you are always welcomed at The Mothers' Shrine. Our Blessed Mother's heart is open and she is eager to bring each of us to her Son, Jesus.
