  • My family and I took a trip to view the lights on Monday night and thoroughly enjoyed our trip. The light displays were very creative and helped us celebrate the reason for the season. 
  • Been wanting to visit this shrine for a long time and was finally able to do so yesterday, Wednesday, Dec 7. Individual wreaths covered the hallway walls and you could place a bid on them if you wishe...  more »
  • This is a must see for Christmas time with their Way of Lights. Such a treasure for Southern Illinois and MO.

  • 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.
  • Well if you like sending your kid to a place that allows your kid to go home with someone else with out your knowledge and then show up to school for pick up and ask the principal where your kid is and the answer is " I dont know" then briskly walk past you, then feel free to. The school administration is as friendly and professional as a White Castle worker. And future dad's, don't even begin to think you will be involved with coaching your son/daughter in sports. Unless you went to school there of course, see the dad's who attended the school as youngsters now have kids there themselves, they think they run the place. Basicly outsiders beware, so my recommendation, if you grew up there probably great, if you like gossip among adults, great, like unprofessional people, great, like cold shoulders from other parents cause your not in that "click" of Alumni yourself, awesome. enjoy the train wreck. Highly disappointed ! If your looking for more, move along.
  • I just have to say that the Lady of the Snows in Belleville, IL is HORRIBLE to deal with if you want to plan an event there... Don't.
  • A fantastic community including a walking trail, theater, and retirement community. Come here during the holidays and you'll be wowed by the Way of Lights. If you drive to the far west side of the grounds, there is a fantastic view of St. Louis.
  • It's a very special and holy place on earth.
