Basilica of Our Lady of She Shan

Local name佘山进教之佑圣母大殿
LocationShanghai, China

The Basilica of Holy Mary, the Help of Christians also known as the National Shrine of Our Mother of Sheshan is a Roman Catholic Marian shrine in Shanghai, China. Its name comes from the locality of Sheshan Hill in Songjiang District, to the west of Shanghai's metropolitan area.

Pope Pius XII raised the Marian shrine to the status of Minor Basilica via his Pontifical decree Compertum Habemus on 12 September 1942. The shrine was previously romanized as Zosé Basilica, using the Shanghainese pronunciation of "佘山". A venerated statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Mary Help of Christians is enshrined within as the patroness of the basilica, along with the recently reconstructed icon of Our Mother of Sheshan, both venerated by Chinese Catholics.
