Our Lady’s Center is a Marian shrine located in Ellicott City, MD. We we are a family apostolate founded in 1974 to bring people closer to Jesus through the love of His Mother Mary. We are faithful to the Magisterium and are registered under the Archdiocese of Baltimore as an oratory shrine and are completely self-funded. We offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, confessions and many devotions upstairs in Our Lady’s Chapel weekdays and on First Saturdays. We host many activities and events in our Conference room. The lovely Bookstore & Gift Shop features an extensive selection of excellent Catholic books, beautiful religious articles, and sacramentals that celebrate the Good, the True and the Beautiful. All proceeds go toward supporting the Center, along with generous private donations. Our Lady’s Center Marian Shrine is a place to connect with your broader Catholic community and find resources and support in your faith journey. Come by for Holy Mass, go to confession, and swing by the gift shop to catch up on Catholic news, learn something new about the faith, and make some new friends!
