About the National Shrine of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
Under the auspices of the Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, otherwise known as the Claretian Missionaries, their presence here dates from 1923. The Shrine itself was begun in 1947 and took two years to complete.
Masses are offered several times daily, and many times on Sundays, so check their website from Mass times.
Traveling to the National Shrine in Panama City:
Panama Canal cruises are very popular with cruisers, and a big draw for tourists. The U.S.dollar is used widely here, so it is very convenient for those coming from the U.S. Most cruises dock on the Western side of Panama. There is also an international airport in Panama City.
