St Gianna Beretta Molla was a physician, a working mom, professional woman, and a loving wife.
She has now been raised to the altar in heaven and provides particular inspiration to all those who experience the constant demands and confusing signals that our current culture places on us.
The mission of the Society of Saint Gianna is to promote holiness in the family and respect for the sanctity of all human life by spreading devotion to St.Gianna and the virtues she extolled through presentations,literature distribution,maintenance of the St.Gianna Shrine in Warminster, PA, including the facilitation of pilgrimages to the shrine and by providing opportunities for the veneration of her relics by the faithful.
The Shrine is located at Nativity of Our Lord Parish, Warminster, in beautiful Bucks County, PA, Archdiocese of Philadelphia.The Shrine underwent a significant improvement with the unveiling of the St. Gianna statue in April, 2006.
A match exists between Nativity of Our Lord Parish and St. Gianna. The name, Nativity of Our Lord, is a celebration of a birth, the birth of Jesus. St Gianna gave her life to give birth, the birth of her daughter, Gianna Emanuela.Many women, longing to conceive a child, have come to the Shrine to touch and venerate St. Gianna’s gloves and ask for her intercession.
God has granted many of them new life.There have also been many other kinds of answered prayers.St. Gianna holy cards & pamphlets in English and Spanish are available at the shrine.
Pilgrimages are welcome at the Shrine
