Looking for a Pilgrimage Moment? The Grotto
The Grotto will host an exhibit of Eucharistic Miracles from around the world in our conference center from October 1st through the 17th. The Grotto, the National Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother, is located just off I-205 in North Portland.
The exhibit consists of illustrations and descriptions of 48 miracles (in English and Spanish) that have occurred around the world since the 3rd century. There is an illustrated board that answers the question, “What is a Eucharistic Miracle” as well as a board featuring Blessed Carlo Acutis. The story of Blessed Carlo may be appealing to students. There are also three short videos available for watching.
The exhibit is available for visiting:
Monday-Friday – 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with a break from 12-1 p.m. for Mass/lunch;
Saturdays/Sundays – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with a break from 12-1 p.m. for Mass/lunch.
There is no charge.
Daily Mass is celebrated in the Chapel of Mary at noon Monday – Saturday. The Rosary is prayed before each Mass beginning at 11:30 a.m.
The Grotto follows mandated COVID-19 protocols, which provide a safe environment for those wishing to visit the exhibit.
Please do not hesitate to have your staff contact me with any questions.
