Celebrate Blessed Seelos' Birthday!

It’s Blessed Seelos’ Birthday!

To honor the birth of Francis Xavier Seelos, we are excited to announce our “birthday gift” giving campaign. When you make an offering of one of the levels below, in addition to continuing the vital mission of Blessed Seelos, you will receive small tokens of our appreciation and heartfelt thanks from everyone at the Shrine.

Due to the virus, we have had to cancel the last three scheduled Seelos Masses and our flow of pilgrims, especially from tour buses, has diminished. This, of course, has also affected our donations. Throughout the month of January, we are asking for offerings in the form of “birthday gifts” in appreciation of Blessed Seelos from his devotees to continue his cause of canonization and to offer a place of peace and quiet at the Shrine. May this add up to a happy birthday for our Blessed!

– Fr. Rich Boever, Shrine Director
