The Shrine of Our Lady of Sorrows is a Roman Catholic church in Starkenburg, Montgomery County, Missouri. It replaced an earlier 19th century log church, which was retained on the site as a chapel. Both were built by a congregation of mid-19th century German immigrants and their descendants.

The church was designed by Professor Becker of Mainz, Germany, with John Walchshauser, an architect from St. Louis.[2] Built between 1906 and 1910, with stones quarried by parishioners and much labor provided by them, the limestone shrine is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
