Map the Mother’s Shrine 

The shrine was constructed in the mid-1980′s as a way to honor Mary, the mother of Jesus and to handle the overflow crowds at the summer services. In 2003, the shrine was recognized as the 16th National Shrine in the United States.

The Mother’s Wall is a tribute to all mothers, living or deceased. Patrons can visit the shrine at any time to view these names. Patrons can also purchase space for future engravings.

While visiting the shrine, be sure to make the rounds to our other features:

• The Mother’s Shrine sculpture
• Fountains beneath the sculpture
• The Mother’s Wall of Life
• St. Patrick’s cathedral
• Avenue of Flags
• Kneeling shrines
• The 10 Commandments
• Statue of St. Patrick

The Mothers’ Shrine

The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church

The serenity found at the Mothers’ Shrine makes this a must stop on your next trip to the Ozarks.  Dip your fingers in the cool waters of the fountains, enjoy the beauty of hundreds of flowers, see the flags of 100 nations, take in the sounds of the  carillon bells and experience the peace.

The Mothers’ Wall of Life has become a major attraction honoring mothers and motherhood.  There are currently 4,000 names of mothers from around the world engraved in the polished black granite surrounding the 14 foot stainless steel sculpture of Mary.

The Shrine is located on the grounds of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, founded in 1868.  Outdoor services at the Shrine in the summer are on Saturday evening at 8:00 pm and Sunday morning at 8:00 am.  The Gift shop is open before and after services or at your request during the week.
