A colleague took me out to visit the area during a stay in Juneau. It was amazingly beautiful with awesome views. Each prayer station was uniquely and simply adorned. With the trip out to see it!

Well worth popping in while exploring the N Road out of town, whether for the natural beauty or the presence of St. Therese.

This is a serene and beautiful spot "out the road" from Juneau. Well worth a short visit. Included the Stations of the Cross and a lovely chapel.

Very nice shrine. Well maintained with easy access and handicap parking. Gift shop is small, pay on the honor system which is very trusting in these times. Enjoyed the visit.

Lots to see at this religious stop but you don't have to be religious to enjoy it. There are great views and nice gardens.

This is in a beautiful forest setting but yet part of it is on the beach. It is very peaceful and worth while.

This old church is set out on a peninsula into the ocean. It's a neat little church that you can go inside of. The atmosphere is very serene with giant old trees surrounding it. We watched the seals playing out in the water and on...More

There is something for everyone here. Beautiful gardens, an historical church, a spiritual center, lovely views of the ocean, even a labyrinth (my favorite). It is so peaceful and beautiful. You can visit for an hour, bring a picnic lunch and let the kids run,...More

We were told to stop here on our way back to town from the glacier. It's definitely not on the way back. Plan on a couple of hours, minimum, to get to the shrine, explore it, and get back to town. It is lovely, and...More

You leave the glacier on the Glacier Spur Road, take a right on Mendenhall Loop Road to Auke Bay - there, the road "ends" at a loop and becomes Glacier Highway/Veteran's Memorial Highway - you'll head to the right on the... More

Any time is a good time. Open 08:30 - 08:00 during summer. It is about 22 miles from downtown Juneau. There is no bus service out there. Taxi from downtown probably $50-55 (one way). Might be cheaper to charter a car or... More
