The Grotto Conference Center

The Grotto Conference Center will be closed November 17 – January 3, 2023 for our Annual Christmas Festival of Lights.

The Grotto Conference Center (GCC) opened in 2002 and is located in the lower-level gardens under the Visitor Center at the National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother (The Grotto). The GCC offers groups a chance to leave the outside world at the door and retreat to a scenic sanctuary in the middle of the busy city. The Upper Gardens provide guests a quiet place for reflection.

Depending upon need, the GCC comfortably accommodates groups as large as 125 people and can be arranged to meet your needs. Rental includes tables and chairs set up prior to event. Linens for tables are not provided. Ample restroom facilities are located within the GCC, and the facility is ADA accessible.

The Conference Center is available for rent Monday – Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
