Meet Your Mother On the Grounds Where She Met Us

Join pilgrims from around the country for The National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion’s annual Marian Conference. Each year, the weekend invites pilgrims to encounter a different quality of Mary – on the grounds where she met us in 1859.

2024 Conference Theme: Mary, Virgin Most Powerful

Focused on Mary as the “Virgin Most Powerful,” attendees will be able to develop a deeper understanding of spiritual warfare and how to cultivate it in the battles of your everyday life through the powerful intercession of Our Blessed Mother.
