I came to view the portrait of "Our Lady of Czestochowa" not realizing it was a copy of the original which resides in Poland and therefore was a bit disappointed. The shrine, gift shop and stations of the cross in front of it seemed very sterile. I was much more moved by an older shrine, which was more like a... More

This place is very humbling, whether you are religious or not. It's beautiful, inside and out, and it's located in a very peaceful setting. You can light a candle for a loved one if you wish.

The grounds are acres and acres. The buildings are enormous, and designed to accommodate large crowds of worshippers, tourists, and activity attendees. The highlight is that this church has a famous Madonna Icon. If you have never experienced religious Icons, then this is an "open to visitation" type of worship center. You can sit in a pew and pray using... More

When I was a child we visited the Shrine and I thought it was amazing. Now I live close by and visit often and still feel it is a special place to worship. Founded by the Pauline Fathers in the 1950 s it have gone through many changes and improvements. The grounds and view from the main church are beautiful.... More

There is so much to see at the Shine of Our Lady o Czestochowa. I highly recommend a visit to this impressive Shrine. There is a Upper church and a lower church, a chapel to St. Anne, a rosary garden with status telling Jesus story that are magnificent. There is a way of the stations of the cross. A replica...

I take all my out of town guest for a visit, Catholic or not! Personally, I enjoy attending mass in both the main or downstairs churches. The grounds are lovely, you can find what you need at the gift shops and the festivals are packed but certainly worth the experience. Very impressive to stop by and take a look.

Went there recently for a funeral service. The grounds are stunning and the architecture and sculptures are beautiful. Bet it is even more special in the warmer months. Got to enjoy their Polish perogies and cabbage rolls. Yummy!

A very beautiful place. We strolled the grounds which were beautiful. The cemetary and small church on the grounds were my favorite. The small church had such a "old and Vintage" feel. The museum part inside the Big church was a wonderful masterpiece of art.

Sitting high on a hill on Ferry Road, this massive church has an upper church and a lower chapel. On a clear day, you can see the skyline of Philadelphia from the top of the main steps. The upper church has two gigantic stained glass walls that trace the history of Christianity from its beginnings to it's coming to America.... More

It is very worthwhile to visit the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa in Doylestown. I visited at Christmas and the decorations were lovely and the history of the shrine is very special. Beautiful grounds and setting and outstanding view of the Doylestown area. There is also a lovely Rosary Walk.
