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.

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.

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.
