The Tabernacle of Our Lady's Messages
Caritas of Birmingham, located in Sterrett, Alabama, operates from the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages which is a 35,000 square foot building specifically built for the purpose of spreading, promoting and safeguarding Our Lady’s messages. Having outgrown this space, the mission is currently expanding the Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages, increasing its footage by 16,000 square feet.
The Tabernacle of Our Lady’s Messages is made up of three levels. All 51,000 square feet was and is being built solely for the Queen of Peace, in support of Her apparitions in Medjugorje. First floor is a large, modern printing facility, equipped to produce every kind of printed material, ranging from a full graphic department to the finishing of books. Materials produced are transferred to the second floor shipping department, where materials are sent out to every nation of the earth. Reception and several other offices for the operation of the mission are also located on the same floor. Third floor contains a retreat center auditorium for 700 people and writing offices, along with a studio/sound room with state of the art sound equipment. In addition, there are three small chapels, one on each floor, and archival storage to preserve for the Church, important events of Medjugorje.
