One of the coolest places in town

The Grotto is a 54-acre forested sanctuary in the middle of the city. Along with the shade of the evergreens, its location on the north face of Rocky Butte makes it one of the cool spots in town on a hot day.

We invite you to come and enjoy a shady walk along the scenic pathways of the lower and upper gardens.

Loving God,

We pray today for all who seek God’s presence in their lives, including those who have come to The Grotto seeking peace through nature and through the ministries offered at the Grotto, and for all seeking God’s healing, mercy and forgiveness. We pray that you may listen to all their prayers and cry for help and hasten to answer them according to your loving kindness. May Our Sorrowful Mother also intercede for them and bring all their prayers and intentions to your loving presence. Through her intercession, may you pour upon them the necessary blessings that they need in their lives. You know them, Lord, before they even open their hearts to ask of you. We humbly ask that You answer them kindly and mercifully. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
