The Church’s liturgy gives us the theme of forgiveness today. How often am I to forgive my brother? Jesus’ answer: 7x77. Heavenly Father, I ask you in Lent, to give me a heart that forgives. A heart that allows me to truly be free. It’s so hard to forgive when I have been hurt by others. I want to be merciful, as you are merciful. Give me a forgiving heart like yours.


The Grotto has been a special destination for millions of people throughout the world for generations. The good work of The Grotto has only been possible through the generous support of individuals and organizations who want to see The Grotto continue its mission of being a place of solitude, peace and prayer.

The cost of maintaining a 54-acre shrine, open daily, is immense. We need your help now more than ever.

Our Friends of The Grotto program is a wonderful way to help The Grotto and to enjoy special events and benefits.
