Absolutely a pleasant, peaceful location to stroll the lovely grounds and take in the beauty of the area, nature, and the church itself. Lovely pond. Gorgeous statues. Terrific book and gift shop. Ornate altar. Nice stained glass windows. Wonderful day trip.

We went to a wedding there back in 2012. It was moved there because the Cardinal was visiting the Mt. Carmel Church that day
