Welcome to OLC

Our Lady’s Center is a Marian shrine located in Ellicott City, MD. We offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and confessions upstairs in our chapel each weekday(s) and first Saturdays. Downstairs, you will find a large selection of Catholic books and religious articles to meet every need. Most of all, Our Lady’s Center is a place to connect with your Catholic community. Come by for Holy Mass, go to confession, and swing by the gift shop to catch up on Catholic news, learn something new about your faith and, of course, make some new friends!

A PLACE OF PEACE IN A SEA OF CRAZY

Almost as soon as you make the turn, you’ll notice a sense of peace. Tucked away down a long wooded private lane and nestled between gurgling streams, we seem miles away from the nearby thriving businesses. Our quiet grounds are populated with deer, wild birds and an occasional blue heron. A rustic grotto houses a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Stations of the Cross line the bank of the meandering stream. But there is so much more than just natural beauty here…

YOUR GOODS & GRACE ALL IN ONE PLACE! 

Come by for Daily Mass, Confessions and Devotions in our lovely chapel on weekdays and First Saturdays. Then peruse our well-stocked Gift Shop featuring thousands of Catholic books, sacramentals and gift items. Enjoy our many Activities and Talks, catch up on news, and make new friends from parishes all over the area. Restrooms are available with a baby changing station. We are handicap-accessible with a ramp out back and a motorized chair lift to the Chapel.
