World Children’s Day at Graymoor

Saturday, May 25 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Welcome to the Holy Mountain at Graymoor, home to the Friars of the Atonement!

We invite you to explore our beautiful and serene grounds on this very first World Children’s Day as declared by Pope Francis. The Holy Father established this World Day to remind us that children are a source of joy for their parents and families and for the Church in which we are all connected.

As you take in the sights and sounds of nature and connect with your spirit and faith, we encourage you to stop by these locations and take photographs that can be used to create memories and new traditions. End your visit at Graymoor Book & Gift Center, and don’t forget to pick up your free gift in honor of World Children’s Day!


Inside our lobby you can visit our Circle of Reflection and write down a special prayer intention to be read by the Friars.


See what is starting to sprout at the San Damiano Farm – our weekly Farmer’s Market will begin in June.


The Sisters of the Atonement have beautiful flowers and gardens in full bloom.


Visit our Shrine of St. Anthony—our upcoming Summer Concert series will be held here June through September.


Light a candle at the St. Anthony Candle Grotto.


Walk down our Trail of Glory art exhibit on the 3rd floor of our Administrative Building.


Pause and reflect atop Graymoor at the Tomb of Servant of God Father Paul Wattson.


End your visit at Graymoor Book & Gift Center – and don’t forget to pick up a free gift we have for children in honor of World Children’s Day.
