  • Welcome To Marytown

    The National Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe at Marytown is a place of pilgrimage for the faithful dedicated to promoting the witness and life of St. Maximilian, a Conventual Franciscan friar and priest, martyred in the Holocaust. It is filled with artistic beauty, cultural and historical significance, and deep spiritual renewal.
    Our Mission:
    To serve the Gospel and the Church by forming Eucharistic disciples in prayer, evangelization, works of mercy, and Marian consecration in the spirit of St. Maximilian Kolbe.

    The National Shrine includes the Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, an educational Holocaust exhibit, and the relics of Saint Maximilian, a full service Retreat & Conference Center and the biggest Christian Bookstore and Gift Shop between Chicago and Milwaukee!
