Located in Eastern Nebraska, off of Interstate 80’s Gretna exit, the Holy Family Shrine is a retreat, a faith-filled experience, and a peaceful setting designed to help visitors strengthen their faith through prayer and reflection. Consisting of a Chapel and a Visitor Center, every aspect of our Shrine was designed from a holy vision and brought to life for pilgrims like you. The Shrine provides an opportunity for quiet contemplation in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as a unique and sacred space for church-oriented meetings and family events. Truly a one of a kind sanctuary to draw closer to nature, your faith and the Lord.
