  • +JMJ...Lovely grounds, Church and Chapel. Also, ate lunch in the restaurant. Pricing was good, server friendly, and the meal delicious. As a matter of fact, a side dish that I had ~ fried eggplant, was so yummy, I tried to replicate the dish at home. Spent only a few hours, but could have stayed much longer. My visit to this Shrine was very enjoyable because of the many beautiful areas dedicated to prayer. Particularly the replicas telling the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the story of Our Lady of Lourdes. Transcendental reminders of Our Heavenly Father's desire that we recall His loving mercy in the gift of Jesus our Saviour. Please pardon my explanation, but when one visits these places of prayer, there is a need to understand that what one sees is more than natural beauty. The soul should rejoice in the spiritual atmosphere everywhere present.
  • We visited here in the mid seventies. The shrine and grounds are beautiful & clean. The shrine buffet featured great soups, veggies, fruit. The hotel was clean & pleasant. The tour around the grounds was great. There was a small building there from the World Fair in Kentucky. Passing through it showed the world at large thru technology and as you exited a large Jesus appeared "Follow me!"
  • I love to there to pray 🙏✝ and to talk to God! ✝💕!!
  • I love the Shrine. My family and I go every year around Christmas to see the lights and get dinner. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere.
  • I understand why Tony Beckett would write a critical review as he was so unhappy with what happened at 'the school'. I didn't remember that there WAS a school on the property. His anger is misplaced. There is NO school at this particular Our Lady of the Snows. No one that would be able to help him with his feeling of disconnect is at this location. There are several OLS in Nevada, and other states, but not in Belleville, Illinois. Perhaps he should issue an apology to this OLS , and then CUT/PASTE his remarks to the OLS in question. If I had not been to the Shrine before, and enjoyed the surroundings, I would have had second thoughts about visiting. Perhaps this is why I took affront at his understandable, but misplaced. anger and critique.
