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.

What a peaceful retreat! A beautiful way to get in touch with your soul. A place to ponder and reflect. It was the first time I ever saw an outdoor roasary garden. The church, chapel, shrine, stained glass, prayer candles, altar, retreat house, outdoor Stations of the Cross, and the Rosary Garden made this a very pious experience.

The Black Madoona, the patron Saint of Poland is located right here in upper Bucks County , P:ennsylvania. Open year round, it holds a special family-fun week around Labor Day every year. We stay in New Hope at Wedgwewood Inn and drive over.

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.
