Can you make a donation to the Shrine?
One of the side effects of keeping people safe and helping to stop the spread of the corona virus is that our contributions are down. We recognize that many of you are also experiencing the financial impact of the corona virus. But if you are able, any donation, no matter how small, would be a great help to the Shrine.
Thanks for considering this.
The Shrine Grounds are open from dawn to sunset for those who wish to walk or pray privately
