    The wife has been to Mass at the Guardian Angel church up near where the Stardust used to be.

    The next trip we will be staying at the Cosmo, so she found another church called the Shrine of the Most Holy Redeemer on Reno Ave. which seems to be closer.

    Anyone know anything about that church?

    Check my post history. There was a thread on Catholic Churches a month or so back and I posted that we went there on our last trip.

    I believe the Shrine is behind the Tropicana and across from the Luxor. It is a block off the strip. It is larger than Holy Guardian.

    If it's the one by Luxor/MB then that is the one I went to last Christmas. The pastor was good and it is a good sized church.

    The Shrine of the Holy Redeemer is behind the Trop.
    It is a large church with masses on Saturday at 4 PM and Sundays at 8, 10 and 12 the last I can recall. It supposedly doesn't have parishoners, really only deals with visitors.

    It's common knowledge that the churches get a lot of casino chips in the collection plates. Just a cool little factoid.
