Find Your Way


Dear Friends of The Shrine of St. Anthony,


As a community we continue to pray for the people of Old Ellicott City who lost so much in the "historic" flood of May 2018. May Saint Anthony, the Patron of the lost, intercede for the many people who have "lost" everything and may they not lose hope in the God who can make all thinks new, even out of the devastation of a flood.

We also received the torrential rains here at The Shrine and fortunately we did not suffer any damage. We are hosting a number of events throughout the summer months which would have taken place on Main Street, and are blessed to offer our beautiful, peaceful, prayerful location to people who long for the comfort only God can offer.

During these summer months please know that you are invited to The Shrine to pray, walk the trails, bring a picnic lunch and to enjoy these holy grounds.

God bless you,

Father Michael E. Heine, OFM Conv.

Director, Shrine of St. Anthony & Carrollton Hall
