To support the upkeep of the Sanctuary we organize worldwide events and pilgrimages to the Sanctuary of St. Philomena’s Pilgrim Centre situated within the Sanctuary. We visit many beautiful shrines and places in Southern Italy along with a visit to the home of our faith, St. Peter’s Basilica and an audience with Pope Frances, if in residence.

Few saints across the Catholic universe have endured as much controversy as the child-saint Philomena. Yet she enjoys the ardent adoration of many millions of people of God around the globe. Her devotees include old and young alike, of diverse cultures and social standing. Philomena has been credited with countless miracles and intercessions since discovery of her tomb in the catacombs of St. Priscilla in 1802. This child, who willingly traded her earthly life for heavenly salvation, continues her work today promoting the virtues of purity and chastity among the world’s youth and bringing the faithful closer to our Blessed Mother Mary and Jesus Christ.
A non-profit organization has been created to facilitate the promotion of St. Philomena across the USA and to support the maintenance and operations of her final resting place, the St. Philomena Sanctuary in Mugnano del Cardinale, Italy. This organization was proposed to the St. Philomena devotees of America by Msgr. Braschi during the September 2011 Conference at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Snows outside St. Louis, MO.
Your generous donations are USA Tax-Deductible and will support programs like the St. Philomena Youth Initiative launched at the Philadelphia St. Philomena Conference in November 2011. Donations will also help make similar conferences possible, bringing St. Philomena devotees together to share stories of faith, devotion, and love. In close cooperation with the Universal Archconfraternity of St. Philomena, the St. Philomena Sanctuary Support Fund will promote and spread devotion to St. Philomena in the United States.

Our Mission is to spread the Word that is Jesus Christ in the style of the Saints. Through print and electronic media marketed worldwide, The Universal Archconfraternity of St. Philomena, endeavors to evangelize, inspire and inform those who search for God and seek a richer Catholic, Christian, human life. Our efforts help spread devotion to St. Philomena V.M. and support the Sanctuary of St. Philomena wherein rests the Sacred Body of Saint Philomena. We work hand in hand with the Sanctuary of St. Philomena to identify which project requires funding in order to keep this holy place well maintained and taken care of and we help devotees find this spiritual and sacred place.
Share Your Gift of Faith
For centuries, our cherished Catholic faith has been passed from person to person and parent to child. Each of us carries in our heart a special memory of how God first graced us with the knowledge of the faith and how Our Blessed Mother and Saint Philomena, changed our lives and brought us closer to Christ.
In our work in the Universal Archconfraternity of St. Philomena, we see firsthand how millions of souls are currently living without that knowledge of God and are living outside of His grace. We have been given a beautiful opportunity to carry out Christ’s work and pass on our faith and blessings to others in the example of St. Philomena, who would otherwise never be introduced to Our Lord, the Savior of all mankind. Just as we pray for the souls in Purgatory who have no one to pray for them, we should also make it a part of our life’s mission to pass on our faith to as many souls as possible who have no one else to pass it on to them, who don’t know Our Lord and His promise of salvation.
By giving a donation to the Archconfraternity you enable us to spread devotion to St. Philomena worldwide. St. Philomena will bring Our Lord Jesus Christ and Our Bless Mother into the lives of those she touches. We know this through the numerous testimonies of devotees.
