We wouldn't claim to be regular church goers and we didn't go for religious purposes we went to see the magnificent architecture. We arrived and walked around the circular path which tells the story of the crucification and resurrection of Christ in order to get the full aspect of the sculpture. As soon as you stop and look at the... More

It was a beautiful mass and the courtyard outside and shrine made me feel as though I was on a pilgrimage in the middle of California.

It was Holly Week when I was visiting family in San Jose, my daughter took me to see the statue of the Virgin Mary. What a beautiful tribute to our Lady! My daughter is a new mom and goes there to pray for strength to be a great mom. If your ever in the area, make this a must stop!

The Statue can be seen from the highway and city streets. If is worth a stop for anyone who is interested in this form of sculpture.

If you are looking for a quiet place to reflect spiritually, Our Lady of Peace is a great place to go. The giant statue of Mary is hard to miss and I have known a number of non-Catholics who work around there who like to go over on stressful days to center themselves. For those of you with children, on... More

Love my local church, or one of them. This church is a bit different than the other churges in the area because of the very tall statue outside and also the Stations of the Cross that you can walk around the tall towering Mary Statue. I like to visit the church at all hours of the night and the church... More

There is a statue here that is pretty. The congregation is very active. I wish however they would pay a little more attention when exiting the parking lot here. There have been some accidents in this area. Other than that,its a nice church and a pretty statue.

A priest friend of mine says he has been all over the world and that Our Lady of Peace Church and shrine is still the only church he has ever seen which has perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the main church. Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, the shrine is the perfect place to escape from... More
