Join us as we commemorate the Inaugural Solemnity of Our Lady of Champion on Monday, October 9, 2023!
Earlier this year, the National Shrine received word from the Holy See’s Dicastery of Divine Worship in Rome, confirming the Shrine’s ability to celebrate a Solemnity Mass of Our Lady of Champion on the grounds of the Shrine every year. This Mass with the rank of Solemnity will take place every year on the established anniversary day of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s 2nd and 3rd apparitions to Adele Brise.
Join the National Shrine, here on the grounds where the Queen of Heaven appeared, for the Inaugural Solemnity Mass of Our Lady of Champion this October 9, 2023. It will be a historic day for Our Lady of Champion, the National Shrine, and everyone in attendance!
A weekend full of devotional opportunities leading up to the Solemnity!
For those looking to spend the weekend at the National Shrine leading up to the Solemnity on Monday, October 9, there are multiple events that can further deepen your devotion to Our Blessed Mother on Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 7 & 8)!
