My brother and I visited the chapel after reading about it online. There are thousands of relics and the carved stations of the cross are "intense" to use my brother's description. The chandelier, stained glass windows, and candles add a wonderful touch. The alter area...More

We didn't get to spend a lot of time in the church because there was going to be a wedding later in the day. It is a beautiful old Catholic Church! We would have liked to see even more of the inside of the church.

Wow! This is a beautiful church, built by german immigrants over 100 years ago-- a time when people understood how to create a magnificent place to worship God. Definitely do the "tour" (talk about the highlights of the chapel) because it's hard to take it...More

The church certainly has a very large collection of artifacts. Unfortunately for us we did not have a tour guide as we were planning to do the audio tour. No headsets available - told they were all broken. There were some booklets with diagrams but...More

I am unsure of the days or hours of operation because they do vary and are dependent upon just a few who maintain the site so worth viewing. Check website which I am not permitted to give but is saint anthonys chapel. org
