Visiting the Shrine

For more than 160 years, pilgrims have been coming to The National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion (once known as the Chapel at Robinsonville) to experience the peace of this holy place where The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared. Since Champion Shrine’s designation as America’s only Church-Approved Marian Apparition Site, the number of pilgrims who come to the Shrine from places across the globe has increased exponentially.

Whether traveling by car or plane, the Shrine’s pilgrimage coordinators are here to help you make the most of your trip
