  • Beautiful church and shrine! We went on a Monday, and mass was in the smaller church. All the saint relics were beautiful! Definitely recommend this as an inspiring holy getaway!

  • I visit this shrine at least once a year. Love the candlelit procession on Aug 14th, leading up to the Mass in the park. Very spiritual, refreshing the soul.

  • This is a great basilica with tons of interesting history. There's a museum in the basement which has a lot of charm to it. Also don't forget to visit the catholic store across the street which has a great selection of catholic goodies and souvenirs.
  • We drive up from Columbus Ohio several times a year. Very peaceful place to pray and contemplate. Looking forward to the scale sized Christ the Redeemer being constructed on the grounds of Shrine Park.
  • Beautiful Miraculous Shrine. Miracles still happen here.
  • Beautiful church. Two storeys. Main church at the top. Must visit the lower section to see the various holy artifacts and dresses woven by worshippers over the years. Only main church is handicap accessible. Lacks air conditioning and ventilation. Large fans positioned around the middle aisles. Side aisles can get pretty muggy during summer. Bathrooms in the back. Drive to the stations of the cross in the outdoor park. Gift shop located opposite the church.
  • Got to Shrine no problems. The best part i got there on time and didn’t get lost!
