“Cultural Heritage Shrine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

Well worth a stop and visit. A serene and peaceful setting, not a cathedral but a nice "homey" setting. A place of worship.

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Beautiful place to visit and reflect. The kids did not want to go but after our visit said they wanted to go back soon. It is nice to be able to disconnect from the phones and noice of the outside world for an hour or two.

“Peaceful Travel Break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

While the shrine itself is very simple, it is very beautiful and peaceful inside of the church. If you're looking for a quiet place to pray and reflect, this is a great stop. There are also Stations of the Cross, gardens, and a gift shop on the church's grounds.

“Such Significance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

This is a Catholic shrine and is to be accompanied with religious reverence. This is not for everyone, and should be visited with an open heart and intent of prayer and meditation. It is a very rewarding site, especially with proper intentions. There is a newly remodeled outdoor area where the Stations of the Cross can be said. There is no protection from the heat for the Stations, so it would be advised to come early or later when cooler temperatures preside, or even during cooler months (unless the heat is part of one's sacrifice). The store is not open on Saturdays, limited hours on Sunday.

“Must see for Catholics.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Highly recommend visiting this shrine, particularly during their Pilgrimage Sundays. During Pilgrimage Sundays, there are special prayers for healing and for the children during this Mass. After Mass, a free lunch is provided for all visitors. Please visit their web site or call them for a complete description of all the prayers and activities offered on these Sundays. They also have a very nice gift shop with a large selection of Infant Jesus of Prague statues. The staff is very nice and welcoming. At the beginning of May, the city of Prague also holds a Kolache festival. The shrine already had signs saying they were selling Kolaches this past weekend. The shrine itself is very worth the visit. It is a very holy, peaceful and prayerful place.
