The Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs is located in the hamlet of Auriesville in Fultonville, NY. Once the 17th Century Mohawk Village of Ossernenon, it is now a Roman Catholic shrine dedicated to three Jesuit missionaries who were martyred here, and to St. Kateri Tekakwitha, a Mohawk/Algonquin woman who was born here.

For over 130 years, the Shrine was under the ownership and direction of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), but is now owned and operated by the Friends of Our Lady of Martyrs Shrine, a board of volunteers dedicated to maintaining both the sanctity and viability of these holy grounds.
