Join the Mother's Wall of Life

Honor your father and your mother, that you may have a long life in the land the LORD your God is giving you. (Exodus 20:12)

Give a forever gift to a mother: Have her name inscribed on the Mothers’ Wall of Life!

She will join the nearly 5,000 mothers from 44 states and four continents whose names have been engraved in the beautiful black granite walls at The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church.

You can add your loved one’s name, whether she is your grandmother or mother, mother of your children or others, or a spiritual mother of many.

Every day, she will be remembered in prayer. We’ll also send an official certificate of the engravement as a keepsake.

The woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Acclaim her for the work of her hands, and let her deeds praise her at the city gates. (Proverbs 31:30-31)

We are currently gathering names to add to the Mothers’ Wall of Life during our Spring Engraving!

These names will be unveiled in a special ceremony on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2023. Please be sure to send your name no later than March 15, to ensure it will be engraved in time for Mother’s Day. Use the form below to submit names today! (Any names submitted after March 15 will be in line for our Fall Engraving.)

To add your loved ones to our beautiful granite walls, please complete the form below. We ask a donation of $450 per person for a first, middle and last name.  If a person's name exceeds the three-name limit (first, middle, last), there will be an additional cost of $50.  Hyphenated names count as two names
