391- Our Lady of La Leche Shrine

A trip to St. Augustine, Florida is always fun. During my last visit I went to see the Our Lady of La Leche Shrine and Mission.

Pictured is a sunrise view of the 200' tall cross on the grounds of the Our Lady of La Leche Shrine in St. Augustine, Fllorida.

Our Lady of La Leche is where the first Mass in the USA took place over 50 years before the Pilgrims landed in at Plymouth Rock.

Pictured is a the 200' tall cross on the grounds of the Our Lady of La Leche Shrine in St. Augustine, Fllorida. Also in view is the ocean and palm trees.

People travel there to pray to the Virgin Mary for the miracle of getting pregnant and testimonials of success abound at this peaceful shrine where dedication to the miracle of childbirth is honored and valued like no other place around.

Pictured is the grounds of the Our Lady of La Leche Shrine in St. Augustine, Fllorida. The shrine building is just visible within the trees.

I encourage you to visit their website for more about it’s history:
