Just by being their your feel loved and special. Gift shop was having their grand reopening after being remodel. Great improvment. more »
Wonderful, peaceful and prayerful. A truly spiritual facility and museum/shrine dedicated to St. Therese the Little Flower. Walkable grounds with a centering prayer garden. Nice gift shop with friendly staff. The new chapel is well designed and inviting for personal prayer and meditation. A respite in a hurried day.
Very well done. The museum has a lot of information and artifacts. The shrine is beautiful and the whole grounds are well maintained and have easy walking paths. There is a large gift shop and bookstore.
