Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Hanceville, Alabama
Tucked away in the town of Hanceville, Alabama, is Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament of Our Lady of the Angels Monastery. Built by Mother Angelica, the shrine is a replica of the Basilica of St. Francis in Assisi, Italy, and home to the second largest monstrance in the world. You can come for a day of contemplative prayer, for Mass, or to join the cloistered nuns in their chanting of the Hours. The peaceful grounds are also home to the John Paul II Eucharistic Center, the Stations of the Most Holy Eucharist, and a Lourdes Grotto.
