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. Call for our Mass and novena schedule 330 833-8478.
THE LEAGUE OF ST. DYMPHNA comprises members who invoke her intercession that they will be preserved from mental and nervous disorders, or soon recover if now afflicted. The membership in the League is $3.00 per year, less than 6 cents a week, and you will share in our most continuous novenas, plus the benefits listed on the application. (click here) Most members are enrolled and make the novenas with us for a relative or friend who is having a real struggle climbing the hill of recovery. We receive a number of letters expressing gratitude for favors received. Many recoveries can be attributed to St. Dymphna's intercession. There are some, however, who must continue to carry the heavy burden of mental suffering and we should not overlook the merit they gain for all eternity.
A candle will be lighted and placed at the Shrine in the name of whomever you wish to honor with a prayer. The candle burns for 7 days. Click here for 7-Day Votive Candle >
Family Perpetual Memberships, Individual Perpetual Memberships and Yearly Memberships are available to The League of St. Dymphna. Order your membership here >
