Join us as we celebrate the dedication and opening of our Saint Sharbel Shrine. Over the course of some years, a group of Lebanese faithful would pay visits to the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. After seeing new saints statues and shrines established on the grounds, they thought about inquiring whether it might be possible to add a shrine dedicated to St. Sharbel. The director of the shrine accepted the group’s proposal. Further discussion led to an agreement to execute this project under the sponsorship of the “Family of St. Sharbel, USA.”

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
