There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Nebraska

If you’ve ever driven past Gretna on I-80, chances are you’ve seen it there: an enigmatic, magical-looking building on the hill. At night it is lit from within, making its glass walls glow and adding a further sense of enchantment.

Whether you are a Catholic looking for divine inspiration or an admirer of impressive architecture, the Holy Family Shrine deserves a visit. To get there from I-80, take exit 432 and go south on Hwy 31 for about 1.5 miles. Turn right and drive west on Pflug Rd for about 1.5 more miles. The Shrine will be on the right. It is open Monday through Saturday 10am to 5pm and Sunday 12pm to 5pm. Saturday mass is held weekly at 10am.
