Welcome to The Shrine of Our Lady, Comforter of the Afflicted

We are a Roman Catholic Shrine located in the Youngstown, Ohio area.  Our doors are open to all people of good will, and we offer Spiritual Direction and Intercessory and Healing Prayers to those interested.  Also, we offer sacramental services of Confession and Holy Eucharist to Catholics of different rites.

Our Shrine is a place of prayer, reflection, peace and quiet.  There is no membership taken on record.  Because of this, the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, or Holy Matrimony do not take place at the Shrine, nor do funerals for the faithfully departed.
