Welcome to the Church of St. Thérèse of Lisieux and Shrine of the Little Flower!
Founded in the summer of 1923, the Shrine is among the first in the world dedicated to St. Thérèse. We are located at 35 Dion Drive in Nasonville, a village in the Northwestern part of Rhode Island.
The shrine and parish were started just four months after St. Thérèse was beatified, and for nearly 100 years, this place has been a rural oasis of prayer, pilgrimage, and community. Today, the Church and Shrine are a mission of Our Lady of Good Help parish.
The Church is open for prayer each day from 8a – 5p. See the mass-times tab for up to date Mass schedules and the Church Bulletin for information on current events. Our office hours are Monday to Thursday from 8a to 2p. The outdoor Shrine precinct is open 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset.
We are happy to help arrange pilgrimages and school or church group visits and we warmly welcome volunteers.
We hope that you will visit us and discover all that we have to offer!
Your contributions enable us to keep up with maintenance at the Shrine and help fund our devotional, educational and cultural mission.
Thank you for your generosity!
