Help us build a Shrine to Our Lady of Compassion!

Help us build a Shrine
to Our Lady of Compassion!

In honor of the 20th anniver­sary of Heart’s Home, we wish to pro­mote devo­tion to the uni­versal figure of com­pas­sion that inspired us throughout these years.

To that pur­pose, we have decided to build, at the International Center for a Culture of Compassion, a shrine ded­i­cated to Our Lady of Compassion.

Celebrated on September 15th, Our Lady of Compassion stands close to 9/11, making this devo­tion par­tic­u­larly mean­ingful in our country.

To build this shrine, we rely on your gen­erous sup­port!

  • The overall cost of the shrine amounts to $55,000.
