The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows welcomes all people to experience the richness of the Catholic faith through presentations, courses and events. Programs are designed to enhance your spiritual growth and to connect you with the God of peace during the difficult times of life. While the Shrine is Catholic, our programs are designed to enrich the faith life of all who want to look at their lives through a God-centered lens.
