Dear Friends of La Salette,

“The community of the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette is happy to announce the 60th Annual Festival of Lights beginning on November 28, 2013 through January 5, 2014.

Words are inadequate to describe how the 350,000 lights will develop this year’s theme


 We affirm that Christmas is a time to reflect upon the birth of Jesus. Jesus is the reason for all these lights and our reason for celebrating our 60 YEARS OF SERVING GOD'S PEOPLE!  Jesus is our hope in good times and bad. Jesus is always the one in whom we trust.

 It is my prayer-filled hope that each of our visitors will be touched by Jesus and be reborn once again. May all of our lives become a light in our families and to all those we meet along the way.

 Come see our international crèche museum, which has many hundreds of crèches from around the world. This year we also have a special Exhibit of Mary "Pieta" and the Icon museum. These exhibits help us see Jesus through the eyes of our brothers and sisters from around the world.

 The Outdoor Crèche of Bethlehem along with Clopper the Christmas donkey is some of the other main attractions.

 Come visit us, walk among the lights, and hear the sounds of this most blessed season. Come discover for yourself what the newborn child wants to share with us.

 May Jesus’ limitless peace, love and joy reveal to us He truly is the reason for this season.

Reverend Brother Bob Russell, M.S.

Shrine Director
