59 Rosary Beads
At 1.5 kilometers long, the Augustinians in King City have the biggest rosary in the world. The rosary winds across nineteen acres of land near the Marylake Monastery and Villanova College and the beads are accessible to all who can walk the path. This site has also been designated as a site of pilgrimage for the Jubilee of Mercy.
19 Foot Long Great Crucifix
At the beginning of the Rosary Path, you will be inspired by the 19 foot long Great Crucifix, made of specially processed stainless steel, while the bronze corpus is eleven feet in length, created by renowned Canadian sculptor, Timothy Schmaltz. The scroll above the head of Christ indicating “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews” was designed by Ted Harasti and is authentically inscribed in abbreviated form in three languages: Hebrew, Latin, and Greek, consistent with the Gospel narrative of Christ’s Passion.
Join the Monthly Pilgrimage
This monthly pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace offers the opportunity to continually experience the warm embrace and maternal care of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who interceded and continues to intercede for her children. This Marian devotion with an Augustinian touch, in a very serene environment, opens the door for a Divine encounter. It offers the opportunity to join our faith with others to call on our Blessed Mother to intercede for our families, the Church and the entire world.
Our Lady of Grace monthly pilgrimage is open to everyone; individuals, groups from parishes, schools and other organizations. Catholics and non-Catholics are welcome, and it is free.
In the summer and when it is convenient, there may be a Rosary procession through The Rosary Path at Marylake.
This pilgrimage will be held on the third Saturday of every month.
