Join us virtually for our 20th annual Lost Child Pilgrimage
We invite men and women who have lost a child to explore the sacred journey of loss, healing and hope. Saturday, October 24 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii stands with and for men and women who carry the burden of grieving the death of a child. We of Mary’s House open our doors and our hearts to you, standing with you, for Mary’s Bethlehem joy was Mary’s Calvary vigil of sorrow as well. We have faith in the power of prayer to heal the soul and faith in the comfort and support of a community coming together in solidarity.
