On June 14, the water main burst beneath the Shrine’s plaza. The damage was extensive. There is no running water in the Pilgrim Center and the Culina Mariana is temporarily closed. Thanks be to God that no one was injured and the Shrine is safe for pilgrims. Portable toilets and sinks are available and water has been restored in the church. The Shrine gates have reopened. We welcome you back!
