  • Beautiful grounds! I have been wanting to visit for years and it was worth it. Next time I would like to spend more time.  more »
  • The grounds are beautiful and expansive. It's a nice 1 mile walk if you do the whole thing. We didn't get to go into the shrine because we were there while a mass was happening.  more »
  • What a beautiful shrine, church, stations and rosary walks; and grounds. We made the 9am Latin Mass on Sunday, been a lot of years for me, when I was an alter boy in the 60s. Lots of photos. Great gift shop and cafe as well. We spent 3 hours here and could easily double that. The whole area is built on a wonderful, treed steep hillside. They offer cart rides to those that need them.
  • The stunningly beautiful uphill walk to the shrine chapel was the perfect way to begin our morning. You do not have to be of the Catholic faith to appreciate the love and beauty dripped into every aspect of the shrine. Staff were exceedingly friendly and knowledgeable. The cafe food was delicious and very moderately priced (highly recommend the french toast). My husband and I left feeling refreshed.
