The Sisters offer a free tour of the convent and the chapel and if you have any interest in history, the church, the Sisters, or the chapel, it is well worth the time. I learned so much about all of the above in our tour but what I found most fascinating was that the splendor and oppulence in the chapel is actually mostly faux finishes by master european artisans - amazing.

We love historical architecture, and this building is stunning. You have to take a guided tour with a nun (who was quite stern with our tour group, but as non-believers we felt this added to our Catholic experience). We asked for a 20-30 minute tour, which wasn't the full shebang, but was enough for us. The nave of the church has the most beautiful stained glass. The ceiling vaults are impressive as well. This is not something you see every day, and the family felt appropriately awed, even the very young children. Our visit also included a quick stop in the chapel where nuns have been praying without interruption since the late 1800s, where we were invited to sit quietly and offer a prayer of our own. Afterwards we were taken through a small gift shop, with religious and handmade items for sale. We opted to give a small donation for upkeep of the convent, andw we were on our way. I would suggest this stop to anyone interested in religion, architecture and history. We were glad we went!

We took a tour of the FSPA chapel when we were in Lacrosse. The sisters gave a tour and history. It was beautiful and definitely worth some time to take a look at. Their faith was inspiring!

Come pray in a chapel that is over 100 years old. Beautiful- one thinks they are in Europe. Check tour times before coming.

My family and I went for a ride one rainy Sunday and decided to take a tour of St Rose of Viterbo Church. A very nice and informational sister came and gave us a tour of the grounds and church. She showed us all the beautiful statues and explained the different areas. They only give tours for a few hours each day so call ahead. It is free to the public

The church itself has high vaulted ceilings ornately decorated. The concrete has been finished in such a way as to make it appear as marble. The alter is made of marble. The contrast between the gray marble and the gold overlay is eye-catching. The stain glass widows are amongst the best quality in the world. They were made before WWII and are still holding their color quite well. The place is indeed a sanctuary in the middle of the city. The nuns are extremely nice and are quite happy to show off their convent.

The architecture here is amazing and the sisters are extremely proud of their efforts. It's worth a visit if you happen to come in the colder months. If you're lucky, you might get to hear a performance from a visiting choir.

We were in La Crosse and took a trolley tour and along the way our attention was drawn to this convent. We were told by the expert guide that they give free tours. So once we completed our trolley tour we headed to the convent. We were greeted and told to wait in an impeccably clean waiting area. Soon our amiable guide came to meet us. She's a sister who actually lives at the convent. She showed us some beautiful pictures and gave us a short history of the place. Then she took us into the church and then into the chapel. It was a beautiful experience. Whether you are Catholic or not, you are sure to appreciate this tour.

Take the tour. You won't regret it. One of the Sisters will give the tour, which is cool. The video is a little boring, but once you see the beauty of the chapel, you will be enthralled. Love the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. You can even leave a prayer request on your tour with the assurance that it will be lifted up for you. What a blessing.

Saint Rose Convent and the Chapel of Angels is recognized as one of the most beautiful in the United States. The chapel was dedicated in 1906 and since August 1st, 1878, at least two Franciscan Sisters have maintained a 24-hour prayer vigil for the Church, community and the world. It' is truly a Midwestern treasure.
