ST. PATRICK'S CHURCH
& Shrine Merlin
Rosarian Monastery in Canada since 2010. The Rosarians follow a daily monastic schedule of prayer and work — and are also available for the spiritual needs of the pilgrims.
One day before the Feast Day of Saints Joachim and Anne, grandparents of Jesus, Pope Francis has established the first World Day of Grandparents and Elderly to be celebrated July 25, 2021. Pope Francis has chosen the theme to be “I am with you every day” (Mt. 28.20) to express the coseness of the Lord and Church to every elderly person; and as a topic of hope that all persons – young and old – can share together. “This is the first fruit of the Amoris Laetitia Family Year, a gift to the whole Church destined to remain over the years”.

Last year we were not able to open the Shrine at all. This year we are opening the Shrine, but with limitations due to Covid-19 protocols. The July 2nd and July 13th Shrine Days have been cancelled but we will have a modified Shrine Day on July 16th.
