    But in Laurie, Missouri (which is really adjacent to Sunrise Beach) is a shrine you won't want to miss!

    The Mary, Mother of the Church Shrine is dedicated to Mary as Mother of the Church and to all mothers. The mission of the Shrine is to help promote a true appreciation of motherhood, the preciousness of life and the integrity of the family.

    Nestled in a natural grotto the open-air shrine is surrounded by trees and terraced landscaping, seating several thousand people. Near the altar are fountains and a waterfall. The peaceful scene lies in the shadow of an inspiring sculpture of Mary. Groups and organizations use the available facilities for meetings, retreats and pilgramages. The Shrine -- believed to be the first in the world to be named in honor of Mary under the title "Mother of the Church" -- has become the sixteenth national shrine in the United States.
