We were looking for a place for Catholic mass on Sunday in Denver. Quick check of the website confirmed that they had a late morning mass allowing us a relaxing drive to the shrine. After mass we hiked the many steps up the the Sacred Heart Shrine and explored other sites at the shrine area. Didn't give five dots rating... More

Wasn't sure how my family would like this, just because we are not active Catholics in the church. The history is another Cabrini was very interesting to my two 13 & 14 year old. We made the 375 stairs walk up to the Scared Heart. It was hard just because this was only the 2nd day here in Denver and... More

Driving to this hilltop spiritual retreat is ideal to prepare for the mild physical challenge of climbing all the way to the top via the Stations of the Cross all the way to the Sacred Heart statue. The view is spectacular and promotes inner peace and connecting with Jesus Christ. Stop at the museum beforehand to watch the video and... More

The drive up alone is beautiful and the views from the top are even more breathtaking. Nice little church and gist shop. We decided not to climb all the stairs since we had already done quite a bit of walking at Dinosaur Ridge and the Nature Center but it was worth driving up just to see the views.

Beautiful grounds. Nice picnic area and meditation garden. Easy to read displays. If you plan on walking up the stations of the cross, make sure your party is up for walking the 373 stairs. If not, enjoy the peaceful chapel and make time to see the small museum near the picnic area.

Interesting if this is your kind of thing. Not a lot to do here, other than visit the Shrine. But it was still pretty cool.

The most beautiful and unique shrine you'll come across. Just the drive up there is breathtaking and once you're there, take the hike up (about 300 steps) to even more stunning scenery. It's also an amazing place to get married!

This shrine was built to honor an Italian nun who came to the US to start an orphanage for the children on early miners who were alone after mining accidents. The church, shrine and spring are in a beautiful setting in the foothills of Denver just off highway I-70. The area in very peaceful, with wonderful views and gardens as... More

I attended 7:30am Mass, and then wandered around the grounds for about an hour. If you are of a mind to sit at each spot to pray or meditate, you could spend several hours here. There is a small prayer walk with plenty of benches and stones carved with inspirational messages. The spring that she detected with her cane is... More
