Black Madonna Shrine

nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Ozarks


In the foothills of the Ozarks…

Nestled in the beautiful foothills of the Ozarks, the Black Madonna Shrine and Grottos offer a galaxy of dazzling mosaics and multi-colored rock sculptures. Dedicated to the Queen of Peace and Mercy, the Shrine is a shining example of what one man of faith can achieve. The grottos, which are constructed of Missouri tiff rock, are set in a countryside atmosphere that refreshes the body and soul.

The origins of this religious setting trace back to 1927, when six Franciscan Brothers emigrated to Missouri from Poland. One of these men was Brother Bronislaus Luszcz, a man driven by overwhelming faith and love for Our Blessed Mother.

Help Restore the Shrine's Outdoor Statues

The Shrine has been gifted a matching grant of $15,000 to enable us to restore our outdoor statues. This means that if you help us raise $15,000 the grantor will match it dollar for dollar to total $30,000 for the Shrine!

With your help and support, we can reach our goal of $15,000 to match this generous gift and restore the work that Brother Bronislaus has spent years lovingly creating.
