Shrine of Saint Therese Response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Shrine grounds remains open for private prayer.
We ask all visitors to practice Social Distancing, leaving 6 feet of space between yourself and others.
The Shrine of St. Therese is committed to the safety, security and good health of our retreatants, volunteers, and employees.
We are following increased precautionary procedures, in compliance with the current CDC, and Diocesan recommendations, as we work to keep our buildings and campus safe for the community.
Stay home when you are sick. Staying home when ill prevents the spread of infections to others.
Use good respiratory etiquette and hand hygiene in all community settings. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and put the used tissue in a waste basket. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands.
Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60-95% alcohol) if you can’t wash.
The Shrine of Saint Thérèse welcomes your prayer requests, which will be remembered in our Masses and Devotions through the intercession of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. To send us your prayer request, please click the link below.
Join us every Friday from 2-3 PM through August 30th for an hour of prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament in the Shrine Chapel. All are welcome!
