Lord Jesus,

You show mercy towards those who are sick. When our brother, Saint Peregrine, was desperate for healing, you came down from your cross and cured his disease. Through his intercession, we pray, that you may send your strength and healing power upon all our brothers and sisters who are sick. We pray especially for those who suffer from cancer, AIDS and any life-threatening diseases. May they experience your healing touch to restore them their health and be strengthened and persevere in their suffering. Bless and protect also all those who take care the sick: the doctors, nurses, physicians, care-givers, and family members. Strengthen their hope and faith in your love and kindness, and may the Holy Spirit continue to inspire them in caring for the sick. We ask this of you Lord Jesus, for you are the source of everything that we experience in our life, you live and reign, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.

Fund an Item - Support the Sisters

In 1990 a convent was built behind the Monastery at The Grotto to house four Sisters from the Congregation of Oblates of St. Martha, based in Saltillo, Mexico. These wonderful Sisters take care of the Monastery and cook the meals for the Servite Friars. The Sisters also ensure that the Chapel of Mary and other worship spaces are clean and decorated for the liturgical celebrations hosted by The Grotto. Their dedicated service is vital to The Grotto continuing its ministry of being a place of peace, prayer and natural beauty for all people.

The convent is now in need of repairs and many day-to-day items are worn out. And, as part of the renovation, the Sisters will have their own kitchen and laundry room for the first time.

We are asking for your help as we replace and upgrade the Convent. We need everything from mattresses to appliances.

Thank you for your support of our dedicated Sisters.
Enjoy the tranquil sounds of the Peace Garden ponds in the Upper Gardens.
