Daily Schedule & Services Provided
Every day, the Shrine offers Masses, Confessions and a Holy Hour, as well as a Rosary for Life and the Chaplet of The Divine Mercy.
Please see the Schedule Section of the website for the Monthly Schedule of Special Events as well as the Daily Schedule of services and devotions.
NOTE: To accomodate large crowds, there are days when our Masses and devotions are moved outside. These decisions are made on the day in question, and are not announced in advance. Please come prepared for weather.
We have maps of the property, and a brochure on the history of the Shrine Church itself, to enable people to give themselves “self-guided” tours.
Our parking Lot is about ¼ mile from the Shrine Church. Please park in the main lot and walk up to the church/outdoor altar, as our handicapped spaces are limited.
We have handicapped parking spots right at the Shrine Church entrance, at the entrance to the Outdoor Altar, and at the Gift Shop, for pilgrims with special needs.
The Gift Shop, restrooms, and St. Faustina Center all have handicapped entrances and/or ramps.
The Shrine Church is entered by climbing a flight of stairs, and does not have a ramp. There is an elevator up to the Shrine Church level, and down to the level with the restrooms. The elevator is accessed by entering through the Shrine Reception Area, behind the statue of St John Paul II, just to the left of the Shrine main entrance.
Outdoor Masses are on a natural amphitheater/sloping lawn behind the Shrine Church, at our Mother of Mercy Outdoor Shrine. Those who cannot negotiate the hill are allowed to sit in the wings of the outdoor altar or at the top of the hill, OUTSIDE the gated terrace area, and Communion will be brought to them
Please note that the restrooms in the Shrine Church basement close at 5 p.m., when the offices close; and the restrooms in the parking lot close at 5 p.m. Monday – Friday and at 6 p.m. on the weekends.
We have no food services or restaurant on Eden Hill. We have a covered picnic area where you can eat the food that you have brought. Please do not bring grills or any other source of fire.
Please pick up any trash you have and place it in a trash receptacle this will help in not attracting wildlife.
For more information about our local towns, please see the listing of the local Chamber of Commerce sites.
We try our hardest to make each day special and holy for every pilgrim and group who comes to join us in celebrating God’s unending Mercy.
Feel free to ask for what you need and please understand that we will do our best to accommodate you. The more advance notice we have, the better chance we have of making something work. Contact the Pilgrimage & Events Office 413.298.1119
