Welcome to Eden Hill, the home of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts
My name is Fr. Anthony Gramlich, the Rector of the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy and a member of the Congregation of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. We welcome you to our National Shrine of Divine Mercy website!
The grounds of the National Shrine consist of 375 acres of land nestled in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts. The name of the property is called “Eden Hill” because of its natural beauty. The Shrine is open 365 days/yr and 7 days/wk including all holidays and holydays.
On this website, pilgrims will find practical information for the Shrine including: our daily schedule, calendar of events page, novenas, Mass requests, bus registrations, special events such as Divine Mercy Sunday and Encuentro Latino, directions, local lodging and contact information. Pilgrims also have the opportunity of staying at our small St. John Paul II guest house here on the grounds.
On the grounds of Eden Hill, please explore the National Shrine Church which offers daily Mass, confessions, adoration, rosary, benediction, the chaplet of Divine Mercy, the blessing of religious articles and a blessing with a first class relic of St. Faustina. Please explore our other shrines on the grounds of Eden Hill as well including: the Mother of Mercy Outdoor Shrine, the Shrine of the Holy Innocents, the outdoor life-size Stations of the Cross, the Holy Family Shrine, and the Lourdes Grotto/Immaculate Conception Candle Shrine. Most of our outdoor shrines are also candle shrine which gives pilgrims an opportunity to light a real candle for a loved one. There is also an opportunity to have a candle lit in the sanctuary of the National Shrine which you can find on our website. Eden Hill is also the home to the Marian Helpers Center, which includes a small beautiful oratory and indoor candle shrine.
We also have created a plethora of memorial opportunities here on Eden Hill. Our memorials include: the pillars of the Shrine (located below the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy Church in Memorial Hall), the Holy Family Shrine (for families), the Mother of Mercy Outdoor Shrine, the Shrine of the Holy Innocents (for deceased children), the Immaculate Conception Candle Shrine (for the deceased), a Divine Mercy mural, the Shrine hymnals, and even tree memorials on Eden Hill. Please see the Memorials page for more information.
Please visit our Divine Mercy Gift Shop on your next visit and online, which is the largest source of Catholic books and religious articles in western New England.
We are currently working on having our website translated into Spanish. Please be patient as we work on the translations. We also hope to include more photos and videos on this website in the near future.
We invite you to visit the Shrine and experience the Mercy of God for yourself on your next pilgrimage visit to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy.
Yours in Jesus & Mary Immaculate,
