About the National Shrine of Saint Alphonsus Liguori:
If you are traveling to Baltimore, you must see this church…..it has the classic beauty of old-world cathedrals that is sadly lacking in many of our modern churches. The Church was actually patterned after Saint Stephen’s Church in Vienna. It has been given the nickname “where Saints have prayed” due to having several rectors here who later became saints: Saint John Neumann was once rector here, and so was Saint Francis Xavier Seelos.
The Shrine is entrusted to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, offering the traditional Latin Rite Mass and is in communion with The Holy See. They also occasionally offer The Novus Ordo Mass, but their primary focus is on the Latin Rite Mass.
Depending on the day, they have many devotions throughout the week, including the Litany of St. Joseph, Miraculous Medal Devotions, Litany of the Sacred Heart, First Saturday Devotions and more. Check their website for the schedule.
There is a room with approximately 30 relics on display for public veneration and there is a blessing with a relic of St. Peregrine (patron saint of cancer victims) and the opportunity to venerate his relic on Thursdays after the 12:10 Mass.
