Being such a large national shrine (14 acres) and having so many annual visitors (about 200,000), most of our donations go into enhancing our location – doing the routine things like planting new and lovely flowers, bushes, shrubs, and trees each year, building new gardens, polishing the outdoor bronze statues, painting the weathered shrine locations, installing additional pathways, etc. The money we receive from Holy-Post Masses is not dedicated to any one project, but is used overall to make our national shrine an even more prayerful place.
The Legionaries of Christ, through Sacred Heart Apostolic School, provide integral formation (spiritual, human, academic and apostolic) according to our Charism for junior high and high school boys considering a call to the priesthood. We provide personal accompaniment in a healthy and supportive environment that enables them to discern, mature, and respond, if called, to a religious vocation in the Legion of Christ. The contributions we receive from Holy-Post Masses will help support the 40 boys who are studying to be a seminarian at the Sacred Heart Apostolic School.
The Legionaries of Christ, Washington, D.C. congregation operates Divine Mercy University, Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center, youth ministries at several parishes and serve lay people through retreats and personal searches for spiritual direction.
