We traveled to the Shrine while on a painting tour from Adventure Flow- what a lovely and idyllic spot, set in the midst of the rain forrest. worth the visit.

Quiet and Peaceful. Walk the Trail of the Rosary and the Stations of the Cross and visit a peaceful church overlooking the water.

A peaceful and beautiful area. The chapel is very impressive and the setting around it is the very definition of beauty.

I really enjoyed this stop while in Juneau. It is definitely out of the way - about a 1/2 hour from Mendenhall Glacier, but that is part of what makes the place so special. In this crazy world of technology and running here and there, this is a place where you can take a deep breath in and appreciate nature... More

Lovely old stone shrine on an island connected to parking lot by a land bridge. Stunning views of Lynn Canal and sunset. No charge for parking.

We were stunned by the natural beauty of the Shrine of St. Therese, reached by an easy walk out to an island overlooking the Lynn Canal. Although I am not Catholic, I experienced a wonderful spiritual life by the beauty of the surroundings. No entry fees charged, they do accept donations.

This is a must-see but be prepared for minimal services, lots of religion, and hokey stations of the cross. It's free.

This is a retreat area. Make sure it is open to the public before going. Easy walk to the beautiful stone church. You can walk the stations of the cross outside. Lovely vistas.

It's a nice place to take a little walk and just enjoy the spirit and flair of St. Therese and the Fjords of Juneau.
