It's completely unassuming on the outside but step inside and you're blown away by a beautiful interior and an incredible array of Christian relics. There's no entry fee but there is a suggested donation of a few dollars or so. Not sure if it's ever busy but we visited on a Wednesday afternoon and we were the only ones there.... More

I have never quite felt the Holy Spirit as much as I had walking in the Chapel. You feel surrounded by love and peace. Please make the time to visit this chapel. You will have the most profound experience of your life.

The moment that you enter this chapel, there is a feeling of awe, as if you had just stepped into someplace holy. The relics are placed through out the chapel and are just incredible. The art work is beautiful. I will definitely be going back for a visit.

Great place to visit if religious artifacts interest you and just to see the stations. Beautiful work, so much history and relics. Have not seen a location in other states that has the amount of relics. Very peaceful inside and leaves you inspired when leaving to want to return. Often people inside to help you understand more of the history... More

I was taken back when I first walked in. It was small but larger than life at the same time. So many relics and history stories. I recommend taking the short but informational tour. The tour is free and lasts as long as you want it to.

If you can't visit the Vatican in Rome then you must visit Saint Anthony Chapel and listen to one of the volunteers tell you the history and see the largest display of relics in the world besides the Vatican. You will be "moved" by this wonderful tour.

Difficult for me to explain the peace I felt when I walked through the doors. The relics were an amazing gift to me. Then the life-size Stations of the Cross that are carved out of wood are truly magnificent. The expressions on the faces are so lifelike that you expect them to move. I was there a year ago and...

I was privileged to visit this Shrine that was built in the 1800's. It is the home to the largest public collection (5000) of Christian relics. There you will also find breathtaking stained glass windows that are overhead the Stations of the Cross. Also, a must see is Father Mollinger museum. This is a spiritual place you won't soon forget.

The church is beautiful, but the true beauty is in the relics that they have inside. It is a religious historians dream come true. They offer guided tours which gives guests the opportunity to hear the story behind the collection. They ask for donations, especially if you do the tour.

Stunning church with a staggering amount of relics. Amazing to see and then research the history of the saints. Worth a trip to this well kept secret.
