  • Atlanta's Best Catholic Congregation!!! Many churches preach diversity and inclusion but very few are willing to practice what they preach, however the Shrine is a rare gem that actually practices what is preached from the pulpit to the pew. In addition the Shrine actively engages in numerous local, national and international social welfare and emotional support ministries. The absolute best congregation to participate in for anyone seeking lifestyle and culture diversity in congregational life, spiritual formation, worship experience and outreach ministries.
