The life sized stations of the cross with a backdrop of the Berkshires...simply breathtaking. A very serene and holy experience is created for you at this shrine. I left feeling calm and very close to God. Can't wait to go back.

You can't help but feel spiritual walking the grounds - the Stations of the Cross are exquisite! I walked down the path to the Grotto of Lourdes which was also lovely! Just beautiful!

If going to Mass, get there early. I arrived close to Mass time and it was full, standing room only for us late arrivals. Much more beautiful than the pictures. MUST visit. Many areas for prayer and meditation, some more accessible than others. It was the end of summer; should have brought mosquito repellent for when visiting the areas among... More

A friend referred us to the National Shrine of Divine Mercy during a recent trip to the Berkshires. We were there for a wedding (my husband was officiating) and had little time for sightseeing so this was the one thing we did aside from wedding-related events. We went late on Friday morning and the weather was amazing. We had no... More

Peaceful, moving, and beautiful. You have to experience, to hard to put into words. It is a self reflection attraction. You will take away from it something, but something for you. There is a lot of area, bring or wear sneakers. You can spend a half our or 4 hours there. There is a lot of parking and paths, all... More

Strolled along path following the Stations of the Cross while Gregorian chants played on speaker. Wished we could have stayed for out-door Mass. Church is lovely too. Could not walk steep path to Lourdes Grotto.

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.
