New Hope, Tennessee: Shrine of Our Lady Virgin of the Poor


About the Shrine of Our Lady Virgin of the Poor:

Located in a beautiful rural setting, this small shrine pays tribute to the apparitions of Our Lady in Banneaux, Belgium in 1933.

The shrine was constructed under the direction of a Benedictine monk, Father Basil Mattingly, and is a duplicate of the Shrine in Belgium. The statue you see was purchased in Banneaux.

It is open daily from sunrise to sunset as a place of prayer and contemplation.

There are no scheduled Masses here.

From May through October, there are Marian devotions at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoons.
