The National Shrine of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal in Perryville, Missouri, invites you and your family to be a part of our annual tree lighting event on the Shrine grounds. The Vincentian Marian Youth Mass will be at 5:00 p.m., officiated by Father Clay Kilburn, C.M. A tree near the Shrine Church will be lit at 6:00 p.m. in honor of the Advent and Christmas seasons. We encourage visitors who attend this event to bring at least one non-perishable item to help the Ladies of Charity Food Pantry address the needs of others in our community. Hot chocolate and cookies will be available as you enjoy the Christmas decorations on the grounds. Please share this opportunity with family and friends to come together as a community to celebrate the Advent and Christmas seasons.If you have questions, please contact us at 1-800-264-6279, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Association of the Miraculous Medal Facebook page.
