Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, a monastic community living according to the Rule of St. Benedict, have been a part of the Northwest Missouri community since 1874. The sisters welcome guests. The Adoration Chapel, a Romanesque building that took more than 10 years to construct, was dedicated in 1911. The breathtaking interior is decorated in beautiful mosaics and colorful stencil work created in Germany. Master woodworkers carved the golden oak choir stalls, and the marble was imported from Italy and Scotland. The main altar and two side altars are made of white Carrara marble, with pillars of onyx and Siena marble. The gorgeous stained glass windows and mosaics were built in Innsbruck, Austria. The 25-foot by 24-foot mosaic of Christ, located above the altar, was one of the largest of its kind when the chapel was built. The Relic Chapel includes more than 500 religious relics, one of the largest collections in the United States.
