Home of Our Lady of
the Miraculous Medal
The Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal sits in the heart of Philadelphia and provides a peaceful sanctuary for prayer, meditation, and pilgrimage.
Filled with Marian artwork, traditional stained glass, and stunning altars, the Shrine is a fitting home for Our Lady. Visitors are quickly overwhelmed by the beauty of the Shrine, and by the Grace of Our Blessed Mother, which is very much alive here.
The Church was built cruciform in shape and in the Romanesque style. The side archways are modeled after those of the Hagia Sophia (Church of St. Sophia) in Istanbul (Constantinople), Turkey. The seating capacity in the Church is 500, plus 100 in the choir loft.
