The Great Upper Church

Welcome to the Great Upper Church of the National Shrine. By clicking the list below, you will discover the beauty, culture and majesty of the Shrine - all built to glorify, honor, and worship Christ Jesus; and honor the Blessed Virgin Mary. Each blue dot represents a different point of interest. As you scroll over the dot, you will see a picture and description of each point. Enjoy your journey as you virtually visit the Shrine.

If you are planning a trip to the DC area, we invite you to visit the Shrine. We offer daily Guided Tours or you can schedule a group visit for a specific date. All are welcome at America's Patronal Church.
