Restore St. Mary's Catholic Shrine

The Our Lady of the Woods Shrine was constructed between 1953 and 1955 in Mio, MI in honor of Mary, the Mother of God. Sixty years later the shrine still stands, but the elements of nature has deteriorated the limestone structure over the years. The shrine is a stop for many tourists passing through Mio, a peaceful place for anyone to pause to honor Mary, the Mother of God. and a place for spiritual renewal. We have embarked on a $1.2 million restoration project to assure the Shrine continues to inspire people for decades to come.  Please consider helping us preserve this beautiful shrine in Northern Michigan! St. Mary's Catholic Church sincerely appreciates your donation. Thank you!
