The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in St. Joseph Missouri has become a National Pro-Life Memorial, dedicated to offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the end of the abortion holocaust and in atonement for each baby murdered and for the conversion of their parents.
The Mission of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception is to bring all mankind to the Throne of God's Infinite Mercy by authentic repentance and conversion! Our Lord Jesus Christ says: "Bring to Me all mankind, especially all sinners, and immerse them is the ocean of My mercy". Justice and Mercy were purchased by the Blood of Christ; offered up each day at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the salvation of souls!
We purchased this former Church (Church of the Immaculate Conception 1908) on January 6, 2015, The Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
In 1854, Pope Pius IX proclaimed in his Bull Ineffabilis that:
"...We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which asserts that the Blessed Virgin Mary, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God, and in view of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, was preserved free from every stain of original sin is a doctrine revealed by God and, for this reason, must be firmly and constantly believed by all the faithful."
