  • A marker sign for the Shrine on I-65 peaked our interest so we took an unexpected side-trip. It is a rare find and quite impressive given the location. The grounds, gift shop items and main church wou...  more »

  • Amazing is an overused word that does not come near describing this beautiful church and its grounds. It is a gem located in rural Alabama, far from urban bustle and nestled into the bend of the Mulberry River. You're welcome most anytime to view the church, which boasts exquisite furnishings from the roof tiles to the jasper inset floors. It doesn't matter your faith. You can appreciate this lovely church, the gift shop and conference center (which looks like a medieval castle), the year-round nativity, and the gardens.
  • Really neat slice of Christian culture and history. Regardless of belief, the tour was interesting and in-depth, and the church itself is beautiful to walk through. Gift shop was expansive and the layout was convenient.
  • We happened to be staying in Cullen, Alabama and were told about this huge church located on several acres of land in Hanceville. Impressive. I didn't think it was necessary to find cassocks or priest frocks in the gift shop located next to the church. That seems to cross over the religious threshold.
  • The home of the nuns of EWTN. Beautiful and peaceful. A bit of heaven on earth. Built and maintained by the donations of a few wealthy families and from proceeds from the gift shop. A wonderful place to pray and contemplate heaven. All are welcome to pray here. Please be courteous and dress modestly while visiting here.
  • Unbelievable. Wether your Catholic or Protestant, you'll experience the real presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. Beautiful and spiritual. Will return soon!!!!
