Several times Jesus healed those who were sick and paralyzed while assuring them that their faith had aided in their healing. Too often we are paralyzed and made sick by fear, sin, and lack of compassion. You know the secrets that we hold in our hearts. Jesus showed that he could heal by the power of his word. We humbly ask that you strengthen our faith, and that in our moments of greatest need, you allow us to feel your healing touch and to respond to your word.


The Grotto's Christmas Festival of Lights is back and will continue nightly through Dec. 30 (except Christmas Day). This annual event celebrates the true meaning of Christmas with music, lights and joy.

More than 150 choirs will perform over the course of 35 nights in the Chapel of Mary, with its cathedral-like acoustics. 


There are nightly puppet shows and caroling in the pavilion tent, and music all around the grounds. And don't forget the millions of lights! New this year - a giant, walk-thru Christmas tree.


Tickets are sold in advance. No cash sales at the door.

Tonight through Thursday, enjoy value nights with discounted admission.

Please bring a non-perishable food item for SnowCap.
