This large shrine is just north of downtown Stockbridge. The grounds are lovely, with statures and monuments. There is a beautiful chapel and a gift shop. You can also fill bottles with holy water from a tank. There is no cost to visit this lovely area. During services, the chapel is full so go early if attending a service.

We arrived in rain, and left in sunshine. This is a beautiful, spiritual, wonderful place for Catholics and non Catholics. As Protestant I am familiar with the stations of the cross, but the life size sculptures with their very animated expressions evokes the pain, suffering and sorrow of the crucifixion in such a realistic and life like way that it...

The grounds were very lovely, but a bit spread out. Be prepared to walk or drive around. The gift shop was wonderful with a large selection of items. Staff was very friendly. Definitely plan to stay for mass.

There is so much to see and learn here. The chapel is elegant and filled with art and statues and the history of each of them. Out front on the lawn is a life size replica of the stations of the cross!

The church is located in a beautiful part of Stockbridge. The grounds are nice to walk around and the church itself is a nice place to say a prayer and reflect on the good things in life and give thanks.

The shrine is great, but you will like it if you are not a catholic. There is a beautiful huge green park with a small pool and the grotto, a woods, nice walk and spectacular view.

We vacationed in the Berkshires in Oct,2013 with friends & spent a very pleasant afternoon at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy just outside Stockbridge, MA. The church is beautiful & in use for mass, confessions, chaplets, etc, several times a day. Visit the several side altars if you have a chance. The grounds are wonderful with life size... More

Would have loved to walk the grounds more, but there was snow. Stopped in the chapel and was amazed by it. There was a wonderful outdoor sculpture of a pondering Jesus that amazed me,

The shrine is lovely and has an immense amount of beautiful wood carving. The grounds are spectacular with bronze statues depicting the Stations of the Cross. I'm sure they were gifted this property but I can't help but wonder if it might have been more "merciful" to give the money to the poor or create living spaces for the homeless
