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.

I was traveling with my six year old son to visit my sister at MTSU and saw a sign and followed it on a whim. The two of us wound up spending a some time at the shrine. We were the only two people there – it was lovely. It was certainly worth the detour.
