The Grounds of Eden Hill
The National Shrine of The Divine Mercy is a small Shrine that sits on “Eden Hill,” a property of 375 acres of both great natural and spiritual beauty, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
The site has been called “Eden Hill” since it was the site of the very first Mission to the Stockbridge (Mohawk) Indians. There are about 20 “landscaped” acres that include life-size Stations of The Cross, a replica of the Grotto of Lourdes, the Shrine of the Holy Innocents, the Mother of Mercy Outdoor Shrine, the Holy Family Shrine, and an Oratory Chapel. In addition, there are many places to light candles, reflect, meditate and pray.
We have a large gift shop on our grounds that is open daily.
Our property sits on top of a 200-foot hill in the Berkshire Mountains. The town of Stockbridge is very small, with a Main Street one block long with less than 2,000 residents. It is located in the southwest corner of Massachusetts, approximately 15 minutes from both upstate New York and Connecticut.
“The Shrine” is a small church, which was originally the chapel of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (The Marians) before becoming a National Shrine. Marian priests and brothers live on the property and oversee the Shrine. Eden Hill is also the headquarters of the Spiritual Benefit Society of the Marians, The Association of Marian Helpers.
Please note that in conversation, most people often refer to both the Shrine Church and the whole property as “The Shrine,” so we apologize for the confusion that can cause!
