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.

It is difficult to find the entrance & parking, but don't give up. We circled the block 4 times trying to find it. Glad we persevered, because the sanctuary was beautiful. Built in the style of an old basilica, the structure is impressive. The perpetual...More

The church was beautiful. Many retired Nuns, a few Vitterbo students, and a handful of others celebrated Mass at 9:00 am on Sunday. After Mass one of the Sisters told us of the Adoration Chapel behind the main altar. We quietly crept back there and...More

Being in this chapel is a spiritual experience. It is breathtakingly beautiful plus the inner peace it brings to you is wonderful. Don't miss this if you are anywhere near La Crosse.

The two receptionists are lovely and I think would be glad to walk you through the process if it is available. They are the Franciscan order of the Catholic church so I believe you would need to be Catholic.
