Commemorative Sanctuary Stone

Commemorative Sanctuary Stone

Those who donate a marble Sanctuary Stone help to preserve the very foundation for the Shrine Altar, which is the heart of our Church. On this altar, Christ is offered daily to the Father and comes present to His people.

To donate a Commemorative Sanctuary Stone requires a commitment of $400.

The individual Italian marble stones which cover the Sanctuary at the Basilica cannot be engraved.  Instead, names of our Sanctuary Stone donors or honorees are etched on the large glass Sanctuary Stone Memorial plaques located just outside the left door leading into the Nave of the Basilica.  

Your gift will be acknowledged and we will send you the engraving information for approval prior to having your inscription added to the memorial plaque.

The name(s) you provide will be recorded on a Certificate of Recognition, framed, and mailed to you. All donors and all those you honor with a gift at Mary’s Shrine will be remembered in every prayer and Mass offered here, in perpetuity.

Please complete the form below before adding to the cart.
Only one of each Memorial may be purchased at a time.
