Fathers Memorial Wall
The FATHERS MEMORIAL WALL, located in a wooded area near the Mothers Prayer Walk, is dedicated to Joseph the Carpenter and all fathers. The walkway leading to this site gently winds down a hillside to the Lourdes Grotto. This quiet, secluded devotional site is ideal for prayer and personal reflection.
The Prayer Capsule at the Fathers Memorial Wall includes the names of those remembered during the annual Fathers Day Novena at the Shrine. In addition, a Votive Candle will be lit in his honor at the Church of St. Joseph in Nazareth. Memorial plaques at this site are reserved for fathers only.
The nearly 4,000 Oblate priests and brothers throughout the world will pray for all those memorialized at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows. Also, over one million pilgrims to the Shrine a year will be asked to pray for those remembered by your Memorial.
