Even if you don't have religious beliefs, a visit to Martyrs' Shrine is a must when you are in the Midland/Penetanguishene area. It is a place of beauty, peace and serenity. Take some time to stroll the extensive grounds and admire the monuments to saints who in some cases made grave sacrifices for their faith. The Stations of the Cross are simply magnificent. Pope John Paul ll celebrated mass here during his visit in 1984 and the 30th anniversary of that event will be held on September 6th of this year.
