Experience the Beauty of the Shrine from Afar

Explore our gallery of photos from the chapel, and watch a series of videos that will teach you more about the Shrine.

In 1875, the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception was built in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s historic section of Germantown. The chapel was attached to St. Vincent’s Seminary, and its main purpose was to serve as a place of worship for the seminarians of the Congregation of the Mission (CM), the order commonly known as the Vincentian Fathers and Brothers. Since 1927, the chapel’s west transept has housed Mary’s Shrine, where a special place of worship to honor Mary Immaculate and her Miraculous Medal became a reality. And special it is.

These photos and videos reflect but a small taste of the beauty that you will find here.

The Carillon was added to the Shrine Chapel in 1901. Learn more about our historic carillon.
