I made the right decision to start my driving tour with the Shrine; really lovely scenery throughout the islands. I arrived just in time for an outdoor Mass. The Shrine is very quiet and has its own piece of shoreline with a picnic area which was a pleasant surprise. The homemade soup at their café was delicious and I met... More

We were attending a funeral service held in the open air church that is part of the shrine. Very peaceful spot to visit that has real depth of Americana history. We noted there were many cyclists and kayakers visiting the shrine, park and gift store.

Lovely lake/mountain views surround this beautiful, outside place of worship. I took some friends on a ride along the lake shore and we decided to stop at St. Anne's Shrine. It is breathtaking and a lovely place for quiet reflection and/or prayer. We stopped to light candles and walked the grounds.

The director, Father Brian was also part of the mass... More

A welcoming, beautiful environment for Mass, retreats, spiritual reconnection, and even a lakeside sunset. We make a point of going out a few times a year, as the positive, engaging tone allows the soul to resonate.

A gorgeous, historical site. Even if you're not interested in the religious or historical aspect of the place, the natural beauty is worth the stop if you're already in the area.
