Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation

Carey, Ohio

Construction begun 1868

On May 24, 1875, a storm miraculously subsided as the statue of Our Lad of Consolation was processed from St. Nicholas Church in Frenchtown to the new church in Carey. A larger brick edifice later replaced the original wooden church, which still stands nearby.
