Memorial Opportunities

All memorial opportunities exist to ensure the sacred, historic and holy Catholic legacy of the Shrine & Mission along with the blessings of Marian devotion, will continue for future generations. Please contact Beth Walt at or call (904) 824-2809 for more information on purchasing a memorial.

The Great Cross

Names of all donors are permanently engraved on one of four, black granite markers located at the foot of the Great Cross. (Engraving can take up to 60 days)


New landscaping plans will incorporate many hardwood and mid-level flowering trees to be added throughout the Mission Nombre de Dios grounds. These are great memorial opportunities for families, parishes, and groups. Appointment required.

The Lightkeepers

A new way to gift to the Shrine! Since 1966, the shrine has kept the lights on the Great Cross all night, a powerful image and beacon for all. You can now support a month or year of electricity. The donor of the month will receive a special marker that shares the history and inspiration for raising the cross.


Benches are available for placement in the following areas and include an engraved name plate. Various style and materials have been selected for each area

The Belltower

A cherished landmark at the Shrine. The electronic carillon has bells, hymns, and musical selections programmed to ring on the hours, to note the noon Angelus, and the Divine Office hours. The bell tower plaque will include donor or memorial names and will be a part of the bell tower site. Gifts will cover maintenance of the carillon and bell tower.

The Way of the Cross

As pilgrims journey toward the cross, beautiful, brick pavers with names only of family or loved ones will line both sides of the path. (Installed in groups of 100)

Picnic Tables & Gathering Areas

Many school, parish and other groups come for pilgrimage or retreat and need a space to gather and sometimes share a meal outside. These steel framed, thermoplastic coating hexagon tables will seat 8 people. They will be placed under the tree canopy with donor acknowledgement made on a plaque located at the site. We have room for 14 tables. (Immediate purchase and install/2 week delivery)
