To continue the gospel mission of Jesus Christ by responding to Mary’s call to Adele Brise to foster conversion, teach the children and minister to the sick and old.
In a spirit of humility and simplicity, the Shrine is:
- A welcoming sanctuary of peace inviting all to grow in their relationship with Her Son, Jesus
- A destination for pilgrims who seek healing of mind, body, and soul
- An environment that fosters the teaching of the Catholic faith to children and adults
- A place to encounter Jesus in the Sacrament of the Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Anointing of the Sick, for the salvation of all throughout the world
At shrines, the means of salvation are to be supplied more abundantly to the faithful by diligent proclamation of the word of God, the suitable promotion of liturgical life especially through the celebration of Eucharist and of penance, and the cultivation of approved forms of popular piety. –Canon 1234
