Grow in holiness this Advent and Christmas season
The Advent season bustles with activity and excitement at Mary’s Shrine as we anticipate celebrating the birth of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Sparkling Christmas trees illuminate the great marble hallways, evergreen wreaths and boughs adorn the high archways and doors, and red and white poinsettias brighten the many altars and oratories throughout the Shrine. Each of these decorative touches inspire awe, admiration, and joy in the many thousands of visitors passing through our doors at this time of year. To help bring some of the beauty and joy of Mary’s Shrine into your own life, devotional items for Advent and Christmas are available from the National Shrine.
