What To See & Do

Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament

Historic Site in Hanceville

The Shrine was built by Mother Angelica, a Poor Clare Nun, in response to the Child Jesus' request that she build Him a "Temple." Here, the Poor Clare Nuns keep a constant prayer vigil before the Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. They invite people from all walks of life and faith to see what the Lord has accomplished here and join them in prayer.
The Shrine consists of: Cloistered monastery, beautiful Upper and Lower Churches, replica of the Shroud of Turin, Stations of the Cross, religious statues and paintings, near life-sized Nativity scene, John Paul II Eucharistic Center (Tours MON-SAT 10 AM & 2 PM), and Castle, which houses the Gift Shop, Pilgrimages Department, Conference Room, and catered eating facility.
