The International Shrine with the Body of St. Philomena

Spiritual Headquarters of the Universal Archconfraternity of St. Philomena

The church was built 1580-1600 in honor of Our Lady of Grace. Her statue is situated above the high altar and dates back to around 1750, the face of Our Lady and the Baby Jesus has never been restored. The ceiling of the church depicts the story of Our Lady, which has been restored in 1717 and again in 1995.

The Sanctuary of St Philomena, Virgin Martyr and Wonder-worker, was following the translation of her sacred relics in 1805. From the very beginning the Sanctuary became a place of pilgrimage. Devotees of the Saint flocked to this shrine in order to pray before her relics. Wonders and miracles became the order of the day! Saints and Blessed, Kings and Queens, Princes and paupers came to invoke the great Wonder-Worker. St Philomena’s most illustrious pilgrim was Pope Blessed Pius IX, who celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at her Altar on November 7, 1849. The Ven. Pauline Jaricot, founder of the

Society for the Propagation of the Faith, came on pilgrimage in 1835 and was cured of a fatal illness while at the Shrine.

A 30-year restoration program was begun by the present Rector, Msgr. Giovanni Braschi, the beautiful Sanctuary Church been sympathetically redecorated, a comfortable pilgrimage centre has also been created for the spiritual life of the Sanctuary. It is now able to provide accommodation for devotees who wish to spend some time at the feet of St Philomena.

Weekly devotion/adoration hour takes place in the Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament is exposed:
Tuesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at
St. Peter Chanel Catholic Church
11330 Woodstock Road
Roswell, Georgia 30075

After the devotion hour, Father Thang celebrates Benediction. When Benediction is completed, he anoints each of us present with the sacred oil of St. Philomena from the Sanctuary in Italy.

It is a very powerful expression of our devotion to St. Philomena because after reciting the Novena prayer, we openly ask St. Philomena to intercede for our intentions as well as the intentions of people who ask us to pray for them. Prayers have been answered through this devotion.

St. Philomena Sanctuary Support Fund for the U.S.A.
Few saints across the Catholic universe have endured as much controversy as the child-St. 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 operation 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 Nat’l 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 the devotees of St. Philomena 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. Please prayerfully consider donating on-line via PayPal, credit card, or bank transfer at http://philomena-usa.com. Mail donations can be sent to the address above.
