The Grotto – Portland, Oregon – Spring

The Grotto is a national Catholic shrine dedicated to Mary, Our Sorrowful Mother, which is a ministry of the Servite Friars – Order of Friar Servants of Mary.

The Grotto strives to provide a welcoming presence and a beautiful environment conducive to peace, quiet, and spiritual inspiration.

The Grotto offers understanding, compassion, support and hope through a variety of ministries such as spiritual direction and liturgical celebrations.

The Grotto endeavors to serve all people.

I have made two separate trips to The Grotto – PDX and have fallen in love. With the beauty, the quiet, the peace. Every time I visit I always have to go to the upper gardens and just walk around with my camera. Here are some of my favorite photos that I have taken. You can see more of my work featured on The Grotto’s social media platforms via Instagram and facebook! Enjoy!
