Beautiful and peaceful

I love this place. It is a very small and beautiful church. I enjoy sitting at the feet of big statue on summer evenings.

You cant miss the huge statue when passing by the roads around the area. Recommended to stop by. Do try a visit in the day and night as the lighting gives off a different kind of feeling.

The statue is amazing and was a draw to a wide variety of visitors. We were in Santa Clara for the 9er's/Rams game and my wife spied the church on the way to the Hilton at Levi's. Worth the stop.

came here for a sunday mass. the mass was a little boring for me. imagine you are suppose to listen to the priest when he is doing his sermon but its a little too slow for me. plus, there is no choir group.

Very peaceful. Mass is traditional. The statue of Mother Mary is amazing. I like to sit out there in the evenings. Helps me to relax and see how blessed I am. Very close to Biltmore where I stay and close to food!

We saw this on the way out of town, beautiful and tall, could see it from the freeway and we drove around it to admire the beauty of this work of art. Even if you are not Catholic you get a feeling of peace, serenity and awe, and a a Christian it inspires ones faith.

We wouldn't claim to be regular church goers and we didn't go for religious purposes we went to see the magnificent architecture. We arrived and walked around the circular path which tells the story of the crucification and resurrection of Christ in order to get the full aspect of the sculpture.

It was a beautiful mass and the courtyard outside and shrine made me feel as though I was on a pilgrimage in the middle of California.

It was Holly Week when I was visiting family in San Jose, my daughter took me to see the statue of the Virgin Mary. What a beautiful tribute to our Lady! My daughter is a new mom and goes there to pray for strength to be a great mom. If your ever in the area, make this a must stop!
