This was my first visit and it was very beautiful. I attended an English Mass, but before and after that were Polish Masses. There is a nice gift shop which has a large selection of religious gifts and a lot of Polish items, prayer cards, etc. There is also a cafeteria but I did not go there, so no information... More

I feel personally connected to the Shrine. First I can see it from my home. Second, my extended family were instrumental in developing and building it years ago, and thirdly, all our family functions are held there, from birthdays, to anniversaries, weddings and sad to say funerals. Each year around Labor Day a wonderful Polish Festival is held. This is... More

I visit this shrine at least 5-8 times a year. Going to the church, graves and the festival. Always love the atmosphere. The people who work there speak polish but also English and are very helpful. When the kitchen is open it's a real treat.

If you are in the area, it is definitely worth visiting. I not a fun of big and modern churches so I am not totally in love with this one, but it is nice. The grounds are very nice to walk around and stop by the chapel at the cemetery, this one is a charm.

The main chapel is spectacular and houses much history (organ donated in remembrance of a priest killed for standing up to communists, largest stained class windows in the nation, reproduction of the Black Madonna icon of Częstochowa, Poland). Great place to sit and meditate. Architecture is amazing! The grotto is beautiful with the rock outcropping. The votive candle section under... More

Our Lady of Czestochowa Shrine is a beautiful place we have coming to since I can remember. My family has contributed to this place in many ways over the years... I am very disturbed how pathetic the festival has become. Please visit another time of year if you truly want to experience this wonderful facility. The festival is horrible. I... More

Very inspirational setting on a hill; grounds are impressive; interior is spectacular; do not miss seeing lower church as well; but all of this wonderful experience does not take away from the reverence that is felt.

I have been to the Our Lady of Czestochowa Shrine many times since I live in the area. It's always an amazing experience - from the grand upstairs church, the candle chapels, the 'new' basement church, to the Catholic shop where you'll find a gift for any religious occasion. Each time I visit I find something new to explore. The... More
