Saint Gianna Guild

The Shrine honors Saint Gianna Beretta Molla (1922-1962) as a Patroness for Expectant Mothers.  Saint Gianna was a devoted wife and mother as well as a pediatric surgeon who lived a joy-filled life in Italy.  When she was pregnant with her fourth child she developed a cancerous uterine tumor.  The doctors advised her to terminate the life of her baby or risk possible death herself.  She chose the life of her baby and died a few days after giving birth.

Saint Gianna is considered a pro-life saint, and many Shrine pilgrims have benefited from her intercession for conception and for the safe delivery of children.  This guild is especially for expectant mothers, those who wish to be mothers, and physicians.

At her side altar in the Shrine Church, a first-class relic of Saint Gianna is permanently on display for veneration by the faithful, especially those seeking her intercession.

Guild members are remembered in Shrine Masses invoking the intercession of Saint Gianna Molla on the second Monday of each month at 11:00 a.m.  Members are encouraged to attend if possible.
