Learn more about Saint Gianna Molla….The Shrine honors Saint Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962) as a Patroness for Expectant Mothers. Saint Gianna was a devoted wife and mother as well as a pediatric surgeon who lived a joy-filled life in Italy. When she was pregnant with her fourth child she developed a cancerous uterine tumor. The doctors advised her to terminate the life of her baby or risk possible death herself. She heroically chose to save the life of her baby, and died a few days after giving birth. The child, now grown, is her daughter Gianna Emanuela Molla, herself a physician and staunch defender of the sanctity of life.

Saint Gianna Molla, pray for us!
