Services begin at 2 p.m. The public is invited.
The Monte Cassino Shrine is located one mile east of the Archabbey on Indiana 62 in St. Meinrad.
Because Indiana 62 is closed for repairs, visitors traveling from the east on Interstate 64 should take Exit 63, drive south on Indiana 162 and then drive east on Indiana 62 into St. Meinrad. The road is open to Monte Cassino Shrine.
