This shrine is a tranquil place to spend a little time meditating. We went this trip to light a candle in the Votive area in honor of our mother who died earlier this year and say a prayer. It is very uplifting and a wonderful place.

Allow time to explore this large shrine complex. As nice as the upper church is, the real jewel is the lower crypt church. Coordinate your visit to hear Mass in Polish and celebrate the vernacular diversity of the Universal Church. During Mass, the gates are opened and the lights are turned on to reveal the splendor. On each side of... More

In the summer they have a great festival with all types of foods and activities for the children. The church is beautiful. Something not to be missed when visiting.

Grounds are beautiful and tranquil. The setting just brings about a sense of ease. Today the skies were perfectly blue with a minimal amount of puff white clouds. The leaves were changing colors and added to the sense of peace. The cemetery has a statute of a Polish Knight that acts as a guardian over those departed.

This is a wonderful and large shrine. Many of the signs are in Polish and it is a bit difficult to navigate. Web site says closed on Sunday but it was open.

A fabulous view from the main cathedral entrance. There's a rosary garden that depicts the life of Christ in sculpture. On the front lawn, there's the stations of the cross. There's a conference space, cafeteria, huge gift shop, and exhibition hall/museum.

Very organized and feel good after going to confession. They have Polish priests and they have English and Polish masses. Check out the website.. It's a must stop to get your Easter kielbasa and babka bread! Always a yearly family tradition 🌺

Whether you are Catholic or Polish, you will enjoy your visit. The main church is very beautiful and modern. The stained glass windows are one of the largest I have ever seen. On one side they show the history of America, the other Polish history. The grounds are extensive and includes a cemetery. It is very European in style and... More
