Come, Visit Us!
The Miraculous Medal Shrine is an Officially Designated Pilgrimage Site of the Philadelphia Archdiocese! We invite and welcome all pilgrimage and retreat groups, large or small to the Miraculous Medal Shrine. Come for an hour, or for the entire day. Arrangements can be made for a private tour of the shrine, a Novena, or a Mass. Special programs are available for school groups.
Learn the fascinating details about the Blessed Mother’s appearances to St. Catherine Labouré, and the history of miracles associated with the Miraculous Medal. See a replica of the chair the Blessed Mother sat in during the apparition, plus a piece of cloth from the actual chair itself. Venerate a relic of St. Catherine Labouré, and receive your own Miraculous Medal. Enjoy a tour of our art museum featuring over 400 magnificent works of Marian and religious art.
Paulette Mican is our Pilgrimage Director. If your group or parish would like to make a Pilgrimage to our beautiful and historic Shrine – Mary’s Home in Philadelphia, and/or our world-class Art Museum featuring over 400 magnificent works of Marian and religious art, please click here to send an email, or call 1-800-523-3674 x252 or 215-848-1010 x252.
