|Located on Ohio 269 South, the Sorrowful Mother Shrine is an old Marian shrine resting on 120 acres of beautiful, unspoiled woodlands.
Founded in 1850, it is the oldest place of pilgrimage dedicated to Mary in the Midwest. Paved walkways, winding among tall and colorful oak trees, lead to the Stations of the Cross and to the replicas of Lourdes and Sepulcher Grottos - favorite places of prayer and meditation.
The shrine also provides a popular cafeteria service and picnic area.
Masses are held weekdays at 11 a.m., Saturday at 4 p.m., and Sunday at 9 a.m. & 11 a.m. Special ethnic Sunday celebrations are at noon.
