The Mother’s Prayer Walk is a tribute to mothers everywhere. It was begun by Fr. Edwin J. Guild, O.M.I., founder of the Shrine, and is located next to the Annunciation Garden.

A Mother’s Memorial Wall flanks the curved walkway with bronze plaques honoring individual mothers. Seasonal flower gardens surround the memorial walkway throughout the year, especially in the summer months when the “Our Lady of the Snows” roses are in bloom. This beautiful
location invites visitors to pause, meditate and pray.
