I got married in this church almost 29 years ago. I hadn't been back in several years. I recently attended a funeral there and was struck by the beauty and magnificence of this place. I had forgotten how truly gorgeous it is.

We spent about 2 1/2 hours visiting the shrine, spending most of the time in the lower level where there's a lot of history to read about the founding of the shrine. Its impressive display of crutches and handmade dresses from many years back is...More

This shrine was visited by my Polish mother and HER Polish grandmother. A beautiful building, beautifully decorated, beautiful painted ceiling. Miracles are said to have occurred here. Stop by and say a prayer, regardless of your religion!

Great shrine with a lot of spirituality and history. If you are a Catholic looking for a religious experience with reverence, devotion to Our Lady and many relics this is an excellent stop

I heard there is a week long event there in August. I am unable to find any information on it or the dates this year. Can you help?

Yes, it's the annual Pilgrimage and Novena. It is typically held in the middle of August each year. You can read about last year's event, along with a terrific history, by going to the Columbus Dispatch and search for the... More
