A holy place. Hard to believe the people built this with donations. It will stand the test of time and draw visitors from around the world, if they can find it.

What a beautiful place, peaceful and gorgeous. I arrived just in time for Mass, which I wasn't planning on but it turned out to be exactly what I needed that day.

Went last fall, the colors were wonderful. Spent most of the day between brunch and mass and walking the paths. Everyone from young kids to teens to grandparents enjoyed the beauty.

If you are looking for an out of the way place that is NOT touristy, then this is it! Nice little chapel with stained glass windows, gardens complete with butterflies, and quiet places to walk and read. Very helpful staff, who obviously enjoy what they are doing,

I recently shared a trip to the Shrine with my mother. This was my third time walking up that trail and each time has been equally satisfying. Whether visiting while the snow is still on the ground, when the leaves are rust and gold or in the middle of the summer this is a beautiful and prayerful place.

We've passed by the Shrine a number of times on trips to and from La Crosse. Finally we decided to check it out. Very happy we did. Very serene. Lovely setting. Exceptionally well laid out and maintained. We took advantage of the tour of the main chapel which I can highly recommend. We got a real feel for this modern... More

What a beautiful place. Really worth the visit, even if you are not that religious. The view from the top of the bluff is great. The on site restaurant is nice and the people were all friendly!

This is a special, special place. The grounds are beautiful, the path up to the church is very nice, there are attendants that will take you up to the church if you cannot walk that far, and the church is beautiful. The candle chapel is beautiful. And the restaurant is very good, with good value for wonderful food.

The surroundings are beautiful but go in warmer weather, it is a hike up to the church. They did have a cart to take you up which was nice in zero temps. Great place to pray and reflect. Brunch was good, variety of foods but some items could have been warmer.
