Saint Basil Visitation Grotto


Honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe and our Loved Ones

What is a grotto?  The word “grotto” is often used to refer to Catholic shrines built into a rock formation. Often these rock formations are man-made, but they can also be found in natural caves throughout the world. While some of the most well known grottos can be found around the globe such as the Lourdes Grotto, the United States grotto shrines can be seen at such places as Notre Dame, Indiana, West Bend, Iowa, and Emmitsburg, Maryland.

On the northeast corner of the parish grounds a Saint Basil Visitation Grotto is under construction. This will become a sacred place for parishioners and visitors to honor Our Lady of Guadalupe in prayer and reflection.

Bricks will form the surface area where the grotto will be constructed. In an effort to fund the construction, engraved bricks are being offered. Sponsors and supporters can customize the engravement with the name of a loved one.

Please contact the parish office for more information or visit the Knights of Columbus after mass in the back of church.
