Love the setting and the beautiful artwork. Not Catholic, but well worth the visit. Good restaurant too.

The Shrine is a modern building devoted to the Virgin, beautifully appointed. The 100-acre grounds include a visitors' center, a rosary walk, stations of the cross, a friary, and a votive chapel. Peaceful, with wonderful vistas of the farm and wood lands nearby. We visited for an hour and went on refreshed in mind, body and spirit.

When we went through the line there was no lettuce salad, the toppings as well as the dressings were gone, the fruit salad as well as the rolls were gone. The bacon... More

Want a quiet hour or so to reflect on your place in the universe? Take a walk up the hill to the cathedral enjoying the woods and shrines on your way; a must-see in this area

This is a must see and pray place for Catholic travelers especially. The church is amazing and the outdoor shrine to the unborn is moving.

After viewing many many cathedrals in europe, this one doesn't have the wow impact, however, it is still a very beautiful and very special place, even if you are not religious. The grounds and property are well manicured. The highlight for me wasn't the big church that you see in the picture (very beautiful inside), but the votive chapel. The... More

We went as a group of women from church. We started at the church with Reconciliation and Mass. The music was spiritual, and the message uplifting. We had lunch in the dining room, and the service was excellent, especially with a group as large as ours. Good food. We were then able to break up into smaller groups to take... More

I'm so glad I finally took the time to visit the Shrine. Even if you're not Catholic, I think you will enjoy the quiet and prayerful environment. Now I'm using the word "quiet" kinda loosely. There is a wonderful walkway up the hill to the chapel and the church. I did not like the sound of the gas powered golf... More

It's located in a very quiet, serene and beautiful setting. It's a path through nature where you visit 13 devotional areas and statues. The area includes the shrine church the statue of Saint Juan Diego, an area where they have the stations of the cross, A rosary walk and beautiful votive candle Chapel. There is,we estimated,about a mile of walk... More
