Important Notice

We would like to emphasize that the Shrine and the Pauline Fathers promote the Catholic doctrine regarding the Blessed Virgin Mary, hence we do not endorse any “private apparitions” not approved by the Holy See.

    • No goods or religious objects or literature may be given or sold at "Penrose Park" without the express written permission of the Pauline Fathers.
    • We continue to ask you not to look at the sun as this causes eye-damage and confusion among the faithful.
    • Due to the high cost of the waste disposal we would like to ask you, if it is possible, to take your rubish with you. Thank you.
