The St. Peregrine Cancer Care Ministry is an outreach of the Shrine that has the mission of being a source of prayer, encouragement, and hope to those who are suffering with cancer, and for their care-givers, family and friends. 

Members of the ministry team completed an 8-week training course and were commissioned at the November 2019 St. Peregrine Prayer Service by Deacon Gregg Elking. The team is embracing the hope of healing of body, mind and spirit, all the while encouraging those to whom they minister that they are not alone.

The Shrine also offers public veneration of the St. Peregrine Relic, once a month, following the last Saturday 10am Mass and during a quarterly St. Peregrine Cancer Prayer Service. For details regarding the next service, see our Events page.

Remembering your loved one through the Gift of a personalized Memorial Candle is a beautiful expression of love.  Set in the Adoration Chapel, a stand designated for these Memorial Candles displays a photo of the deceased, as well a candle that will burn for a week, a month, three months or a year.  In addition to this display, the designated recipient will receive a beautifully decorated music box and an invitation to our annual Mass of Remembrance.  Music boxes can be delivered to local funeral homes or to the recipient’s home.  


Guests to the Shrine have the opportunity to light candles representing prayer intentions. These candles can be lit for any duration from one week up to a year. The intentions are prayed over by our staff, and kept before the Relics of the Saints. In addition they are remembered by our staff and guests in our Mid-day Prayer, Mass and by our Adoration Guild.

Candles are $3 each per week. This fee covers the Shrine's candle cost. For assistance, call the Gift Shop at 419-925-4532.
