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.

God our Father, we pray for those who have died. Especially to those not remembered, and those who were killed or died unjustly. Bestow upon them your justice, O Lord. We beg you, forgive all their sins due to human weakness. Finally, grant them, Lord, eternal peace in your presence. We ask this through Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. Amen.

St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for us.
