Welcome to Sorrowful Mother Shrine

Sorrowful-Mother-Steeple.jpg

The Sorrowful Mother Shrine near Bellevue, Ohio, USA is an inspiring place of prayer where God and nature touch. Wild flowers and planted flower beds mingle in the 120 acres of woods and lawns. The center of the Shrine is the Sorrowful Mother Chapel.

The Missionaries of the Precious Blood have operated the Shrine since its founding in 1850. On Sundays and Holy Days priests and religious lead devotional services and processions; they visit with people sharing their joys and sorrows or walk with them praying at one of the many grottos, gardens or Stations of the Cross in the woods.

If you feel the need to get in tune with yourself and with God's universe, you'll find that a day or even a few hours spent at the Sorrowful Mother Shrine will bring you rich personal and spiritual rewards.
