Marble Pillars of the National Shrine

The National Shrine of The Divine Mercy — constructed entirely by hand by local craftsmen and Marian priests and brothers — took 10 years to build (1950-1960). This magnificent stone shrine was funded with free-will offerings from thousands of faithful Marian Helpers who had been touched by the Divine Mercy message and wanted to express their gratitude to God.

When you make a gift to maintain the National Shrine, we will inscribe your name (or the name of a loved one) on one of the marble pillars located in Memorial Hall on the lower level of the National Shrine.

Spiritual Benefits: You and those you entrust to our prayers will be remembered twice daily at the National Shrine of The Divine Mercy — in the Holy Mass and during the Hour of Great Mercy — including in a Holy Mass on Divine Mercy Sunday.
