Santuario Maria Theotokos

The desire to build a church for the inhabitants and the numerous visitors of Loppiano was expressed by Chiara Lubich already in 1986. However, the church will reach its finish line only in the 40th anniversary of the birth of Mariapolis Renata. It was built 'as a seal, as a culmination point of the town' Chiara stated on May 15, 2003 on the occasion of the laying of the first stone,'indeed as a symbol of how much we try to live in it.'The church is dedicated to Mary, Mother of God, the Theotokos'.The construction of the new church has undoubtedly marked a new stage in the life of Loppiano. From October 29, 2004, the day of its opening and dedication to 'Maria Theotokos', the Mother of God, the Shrine has become the daily reference point for all the inhabitants of this original town. Scattered over the hills the town's real composition is hidden until evening Mass when suddenly the roads are peopled by the Mariapolis' approximately 800 citizens coming in from the various homes, workplaces and surrounding areas.
