About Us

Our Lady of the Shoals is a Catholic Church located in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Our hope is to offer visitors the occasion for a deepening conversion, a step forward in the journey to God, with Mary as the model for that journey. To quote Pope Saint John Paul II:

From Mary we learn to surrender to God’s Will in all things. From Mary we learn to trust even when all hope seems gone. From Mary we learn to love Christ her Son and the Son of God!

We like to think that our church, with the vibrancy of its windows, the beauty of its music and the purpose of its charitable outreach call us to respond to our shared humanity – one in the image and likeness of God, saved by his Son, Jesus Christ, in the family of the Church. The heart of Our Lady of the Shoals is the faith, work and generosity of good people bringing God’s presence into the world, inspiring a conversation among the generations. It is here that the faithful gather to worship God, give honor to Mary, and are sent to spread God’s word wherever they go.
