The Rebirth of Marylake
A NEW BEGINNING
"From its rolling hills, cultivated farmland and kettle lake, to its forest tract, marshes, hiking trails, Rosary Path and more, one need only sit in silence for but a moment before it becomes abundantly clear that this land was designed for respite, spiritual reflection, meditation, healing, and contemplation." writes Kelly Mathews, author of the recently published The Road to Marylake.
So far, since 2016, we have built and made accessible the world's largest living rosary - the 1.5 kilometer Rosary Path at Marylake, and we have also installed the Great Crucifix at its beginning. The Shrine of Our Lady of Grace has been refurbished and is now open for world-class masses, concerts and conferences. The 15-station Way of the Cross was completed in the summer of 2018. Statues and fountains are also currently being constructed.
Benches, picnic tables and gazebos have been added, trees are being planted and landscaping work continues on The Rosary Path. There's a lot more to do as outlined in Our Bold New Vision, and support and donations will help expedite projects. We have also developed this website that is more reflective of the essence and spirituality of Marylake, and we encourage you to connect with us.

The Monthly Pilgrimage to Marylake
This monthly pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace offers the opportunity to continually experience the warm embrace and maternal care of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who interceded and continues to intercede for her children. This Marian devotion with an Augustinian touch, in a serene environment, opens the door for a Divine encounter. It offers the opportunity to join our faith with others to call on our Blessed Mother to intercede for our families, the Church and the entire world.
In the summer and when it is convenient, we may do a Rosary procession through The Rosary Path at Marylake.
Our Lady of Grace monthly pilgrimage is open to everyone; individuals, groups from parishes, schools and other organizations. Catholics and non-Catholics are welcome, and it is free.
This pilgrimage will be held on the third Saturday of every month beginning in November of 2018.

No Confessions on Sundays
Confession is a sacrament instituted by Jesus Christ in his love and mercy. It is here that we meet the loving Jesus who offers sinners forgiveness for offenses committed against God, neighbours or strangers. At the same time, Confession permits sinners to reconcile with the Church, which also is wounded by our sins. Read more...
