Friends of The Grotto

Friends of The Grotto

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.
