Organizer

Saint John Paul II National Shrine

The Saint John Paul II National Shrine is a major pastoral initiative of the Knights of Columbus, a lay Catholic fraternal organization with approximately two million members around the world. Faithful to continuing the mission and legacy of Pope John Paul II, in 2011 the Knights established a shrine to him in the nation’s capital. After five years of construction and the canonization of its patron, the Saint John Paul II National Shrine attracts tens of thousands of pilgrims annually. It is a place of worship, religious formation, and cultural renewal. A major permanent exhibit highlights significant events in the life of John Paul II and his momentous influence as the spiritual father of one billion Catholics and as a world leader. The shrine also hosts talks, days of reflection, special devotions, and other events to feed the minds and souls of its visitors. It is the Knights’ hope that this initiative will serve the life of the Church in the United States and will thus bear abundant fruit for the universal Church and for the world.
