Shrine of the North American Martyrs

Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs, Auriesville, NY

The Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs in Auriesville, New York, honors St. Isaac Jogues, St. René Goupil, St. John Lalande, and Bl. Kateri Tekakwitha. This picture was taken inside the impressive Coliseum Church at Auriesville. The shrine, sometimes called “The National Shrine of the North American Martyrs,” spans acres of land so a visitor can walk around and enjoy both the sacred spaces of nature and the church interior.

October 19 is the feast day of St. John de Brébeuf, SJ, St. Isaac Jogues, SJ, and their companions.
