The shrine was constructed in the mid-1980′s as a way to honor Mary, the mother of Jesus and to handle the overflow crowds at the summer services. In 2003, the shrine was recognized as the 16th National Shrine in the United States.
The Mother’s Wall is a tribute to all mothers, living or deceased. Patrons can visit the shrine at any time to view these names. Patrons can also purchase space for future engravings.
