Enroll Someone in
the Fathers Shrine To St. Joseph

Fifteen years ago we were approached with the idea of a National Shrine for Fathers, noting the lack on one in America. As of 2022, the National Shrine for Mothers in Laurie, MO has no counterpart. The construction of the Monastery of St. Joseph resuscitated this inspiration! 

Make your commemorative gift in honor of a father! Whether it be a physical father, spiritual father, or mentor who has been a father figure for you, the living and deceased who have been enrolled at the Shrine will be perpetually remembered in prayer by the sisters and the visitors to the Shrine. 

Mass will be offered at least once yearly for all who have been enrolled. Sponsorships are available for the Statue, Altar, and Fountain. 

Engraving opportunities are available for the walls of the shrine, shrine benches, and bricks of the walkways and plaza.
