This shrine sits on some of the most scenic landscape in Juneau. You can walk around the grounds which are full of trees, flowers and the ocean very close by. Some people were combing the beaches for star fish etc. others were admiring the plants...More

Gorgeous location, with pretty gardens (complete with a cat who will come by to cuddle if you stay long enough), a columbarium, a labyrinth, walking trail with stations of the cross, a beach, and a picturesque chapel on a peninsula, connected to the main Shrine...More

What a beautiful and peaceful place. Wonderful to go for a walk there. It is worth walking around the Church - lots of surprises. It is literally a church in the rainforest.

This church and surrounding property is everything a church in the woods should be - naturally beautiful, inspiring, peaceful, contemplative, interesting, spiritual, healing, etc.

We found the Shrine of St Therese on a drive out toward Auke Bay. The site is a retreat site and has a waking labyrinth, stations of the Cross, and a beautiful Chapel. The site is on the water which adds to the serenity to...More

We went here by accident as I had not really realized what it was. It is a beautiful little church on a small island with the stations of the cross and a garden. It is Catholic, so I would recommend it for anyone interested in...More

If you enjoy visiting beautiful religious shrines in scenic locations, this is one you'll want to see when you are in the Juneau area. You can drive into their parking lot and walk the causeway to the shrine on what was probably an island before....More

Beautiful spot, very peaceful, quiet. Well worth the stop. Would like to have spent more time. Great place to wonder around and take some nice pictures. The church is quite something. Not touristy at all.

It could have been a great stay but the sewer made it less attractive because of the smell. Warning not to go into the sea because of this, came to my attention on the way back. Beds not to good, positions even stranger.

We stopped by on our drive. It is in a beautiful location and very peaceful. We watched a whale from shore. It is a great place to stop for a visit.

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
