This was our third visit to the shrine, my first for the Polish Festival.We have always enjoyed our visits here, includung once going to mass in polish. The festival was enjoyable, but a bit expensive. Maybe if I was Polish I would have liked it more. The food was a bit dissapointing, especially the perogies. Still an enjoyable afternoon.

I have been to the real place in Poland and so this is no comparison. However, it has some interesting stained glass, a shop selling Polish memorabilia, and a place to eat Polish food.

The shrine is just plain beautiful, both the church and the grounds. The gift shop is huge with a variety of lovely things including books, DVDs, art work, statues, rosaries, holy cards, and many other items. It is an interesting and spiritual place to visit while in the area.

What a solemn but beautiful place to honor friends and loved ones. I was especially moved by the section for the veterans both American servicemen and Polish military vets.

Located a few miles north of Doylestown the Shrine encompasses a large area. The are several chapels on the property besides the main church. Masses are offered in both Polish and English. There is a large religious gift shop next to the church and a cafeteria on the weekends.

The place is especially festive during multiple special events including the annual Polish Festival in September. The church has stain-glass windows depicting the history of Poland and history of United States.... More

My Mom and Dad were visiting this Shrine before I was born, and the Shrine is one of my earliest memories, thanks to Mom and Dad.

The Shrine of Czestochowa is a wonderful place to visit and pray! Lots of great grounding energy there! There is a nearby park called Peace Valley which is nice to hike or go sailing as well!

Visited this church several time. It is very beautiful inside. They have many functions during the year as fund raisers. Must see the church if you are in the area.
