Las Vegas, Nevada: Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer
Las Vegas hosts approximately 37 million visitors each year, among which are an estimated 5-6 million Catholics. Although the city’s reputation as “Sin City” is often touted, there are also many people who come here simply for a vacation.
When looking for a place to attend Mass, there is one that stands out, since it is located right on the Strip and not only offers daily and Sunday Masses, but is also a good place to spend a few minutes in front of the Blessed Sacrament .
The Shrine sanctuary seats 2,200 people and was funded by donations from individuals and corporations in the city of Las Vegas. It was dedicated on February 2, 1993.
The Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer is not a parish….it is a Shrine. That means there are no weddings or baptisms here, but it is a place of worship. Priests come from various parishes within the Diocese…in fact, it is located just behind the Diocesan offices.
There is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament most afternoons (check their website) as well as daily Mass, Saturday Vigil Mass and several Masses on Sundays. And, you can even donate casino chips to the Shrine! They are then taken to various casinos to be cashed in.
The shrine is open weekdays from 10:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays 10:45 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Sundays 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

A special note about attending Mass in Las Vegas: the Diocese of Las Vegas points out several schismatic churches advertising themselves as “Catholic”, when in fact, they are not. Check the Diocesan website for this list (near the bottom of the page under “schismatic communities”).
