Patron Saint of Those with Nervous Disorders and Mental Illness

Due to a recent fire, the Votive Shrine will be closed until further notice. The office and gift shop will be open as usual 9-5 Monday through Friday. Pilgrims and visitors are always invited and welcome to join us for prayer, adoration and weekly Shrine Mass at our Eucharistic chapel.

National Shrine of St. Dymphna (pronounced Dimf-nah) is located on the grounds of St. Mary Parish in Massillon Ohio.

St. Dymphna is the patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders. Although many have never heard of St. Dymphna, she is becoming increasingly popular during these days of worry, fear and anxiety. Then, too, there are few people in the world who are not at some time or another troubled with their nerves.

Office and Gift Shop open weekdays 9:00am-5:00pm. Weekends by appointment. Votive shrine is available for visitation during St Mary’s Mass times (Saturday 4:30pm, Sunday 7:30am-9:30am-12:00pm). Please call 330-833-8478 for further information.

I hope you will make the novenas along with us, and promote devotion to St. Dymphna among your friends. You can especially promote this devotion by calling your friends and neighbors attention to the devotion in honor of St. Dymphna.
