Event Description

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.”
