  • One of only 10 saints canonized in the United States. The church where the remains reside is a sad mix of contemporary interior design in an unfinished structure that could not be completed due to the lack of offerings. Putting that aside, the story of her life is impressive and you leave knowing that there were powerful woman in American history. The Shrine is a good place for prayer and meditation. Don't expect entertainment and touristy traps, it is solemn and a place of prayer.
