We visited here after the mendenhall glacier visitor center. There it was a zoo of people. At St. Therese's there were hardly any visitors and we got to enjoy their beautiful gardens and short trails in peace.

Our son was married at the Shrine. Such a peaceful place with gorgeous ocean views. It is a trek to get out to the Shrine so wear comfortable shoes. We loved walking the trails & watching the salmon go up the little creek
