The Our Lady of the Woods Shrine was constructed between 1953 and 1955 in Mio, MI. Community members worked together to build and fund this breathtaking structure. Sixty years later the shrine still stands, but the four seasons over the years has deteriorated the limestone structure. The shrine is a stop for many tourists passing through Mio and a peaceful place for anyone to take a gander. Currently, there is a committee working to make decisions toward restoring and maintaining the shrine. Our community needs all of the support we can get to help us save and restore this beautiful shrine! St. Mary's Catholic Church sincerely appreciates your donation. Thank you!

I'm sending this donation in honor of my parents John and Marisa MacInnis' 75th birthdays. My grandparents Clare and Dan MacInnis donated towards the original shrine in the 1950s. If my donation qualifies towards a commemorative brick, I would love to know about that so I can send a note to my parents. Thank you!
