National Shrine

Grotto of Lourdes

        Emmitsburg, MD              

Above the lovely valley of Emmitsburg, MD, situated high on a mountainside overlooking Mount St. Mary's campus and the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, a statue of Our Lady rises atop the Pangborn Memorial Campanile.

In addition to the campanile and grotto lie an exquisite rosary walk and the Stations of the Cross. 

We have made many pilgrimages to this most wonderful place and we will make many more in the future. Once you see "Mary on the Mountain" you will know why.


Follow the signs on U.S. 15 to the Statue of Our Lady, from there you can walk to the grotto and other sites.
