Why a Shrine to Our Lady of the Highways?

In 1968, on a foggy October night, seven automobiles collided on interstate 95, just a few yards from an Oblate house.  Many Oblates assisted the injured and dying on this busy highway.

Later, the Oblates erected a statue of our Lady as a memorial to those who died, and as a reminder to all motorists to drive safely.  This monument was dedicated as a Shrine to Our Lady of the Highways to invoke Mary, Christ's mother, as protector of travelers.

Who are Mary's Travelers?

A Group pledged to drive defensively
To keep their vehicle mechanically safe
To pray before beginning a trip
And pray for themselves and other travelers
