Welcome to Eden Hill, the home of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts
My name is Fr. Anthony Gramlich, MIC. I'm the rector of the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and a member of the Congregation of the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception. We welcome you to our National Shrine of The Divine Mercy website!
The grounds of the National Shrine consist of 375 acres of land nestled in the beautiful Berkshire hills in western Massachusetts. The name of the property is called “Eden Hill” because of its natural beauty. The Shrine church is open 365 days a year, including all holidays and holy days.
On this website, pilgrims will find practical information for the Shrine including:
- The Daily Shrine Schedule,
- Calendar of Events
- Mass requests
- Bus registrations
- Special events such as Divine Mercy Sunday and Encuentro Latino
- Local Lodging
- 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 chapel itself, 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 shrines, which give 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. Eden Hill is also the home to the Marian Helpers Center, which includes a small, beautiful oratory and indoor candle shrine.
We know that many of you are used to visiting the Shrine and lighting candles for your own intentions and for loved ones. Given the coronavirus pandemic, many of you are not able to come and light a candle for your needs. During this time of crisis, we Marian priests and brothers, are willing to light a candle for your intentions. With each candle lit, we will pray for you and your needs. Each candle represents a light shining, dispelling this darkness. If you would like to have a candle lit, please click here to send us your intention. God Bless You! You are in our thoughts and prayers during this pandemic.
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)

Please visit our Divine Mercy Gift Shop on your next visit and online. It is the largest source of Catholic books and religious articles in western New England.
