  • What a nice stop on the road. This is a shrine of Mary, which we did not expect. The passion story was really cool, but many differences from the Bible account including added characters. The Moses display was well-done, but does not use the Bible 10 commandments. The gift shop is so full of great finds. The staff were so very friendly. This was a place that would lead to some reflective thought and prayer. Nice walk outdoors.
  • When you begin to walk the path you can simply feel the energy. My boys and I got to experience over 20 bronze biblical sculptures with the works of add-on’s.Having to go through the gift shop first with a wonderful staff, made this experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommended as well as giving a donation, it’s well worth the experience plus more.
