A Shrine is the sacred place to which its faithful make pilgrimages for a particular pious reason with the approval of the local bishop. Santa Fe in Spanish means “Holy Faith”. High Springs is surrounded with the name of Santa Fe. The famous 75 mile Santa Fe River, which crisscrosses the High Springs area, derives its name from a Franciscan mission named Santa Fe Toloca formerly located near the river.

The location of Santa Fe High School, the Santa Fe College, the Santa Fe Boulevard and various businesses using this name all make the geography of faith imprinted in our community. Our Lady of La Leche (in Spanish means “our milking mother.” From the 6th century grotto in Bethlehem the devotion to the Beloved Mother nursing the Infant Jesus was brought to Europe by the pilgrims during the Crusades. The Spanish faithful shared their devotion in the New World and created its first Marian Shrine dedicated to Our Lady of La Leche St. Augustine over 400 years ago. The new Santa Fe Shrine of Our Lady of La Leche, was ready by the beginning of December when the Year of Divine Mercy declared by Pope Francis commenced on December 8th, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.

Our Shrine's History Miraculous Medal Hail Mary Prayer 10/13/17



Miraculous Medal Prayer
Mary, this medal is a sign and a guarantee of your presence. You are present because your power is present, your voice is present and your love is present. Therefore, O wonderful Sinless Woman and our Mystical Mother, we call on you now to fulfill your guarantee. Bring us the great graces you promised to those who carry this medal, especially to those who wear it around their neck. Make us perceive our presence now and always. Make us consciously experience your power, your love and your guidance, that in their strength we may begin to share in your perfect response to God and to each of his creatures, and join in your war with the ancient Serpent. Help us utterly abandon our self-centered feelings and preoccupations. Help us hear and understand you. Teach us to listen and learn. Help us respond to you today and always; that made one with you we might more fully respond with the rest of the Church to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, participating in their life and unity.
