A bit hard to get to, and one of the roads is currently closed off because of a (sinkhole?), so there's a three mile detour. Still, it's lovely, quiet, and welcoming. So beautiful! The lobby smells a ... more »

A beautiful setting with wildflowers and a nice gift shop. A place to go for quiet reflection. Just off the interstate. more »

Simple looking church as one sees it from a distance, but majestically beautiful when approaching the grounds. You literally feel as if you are entering JESUS tomb which is a welcoming center with a gift shop. As you exit the welcoming center, there is a walkway that has a stream where water flows from the welcome center and ends underneath the tabernacle in the church. Upon entering the church you notice that the church has glass walls. It made me feel as mass was being held outside along with nature. This church was so serene that you truly can invoke the HOLY SPIRIT. Although, my husband and I were in Nebraska to celebrate his parents 60th Wedding Anniversary, we were blessed to visit and celebrate mass at HOLY SPIRIT SHRINE on our 22nd Wedding Anniversary. It was a wonderful experience.

Beautiful and moving shrine. The architecture and story behind the building are truly awesome. They also have a sister chapel in Eureka Springs, AK.

Beautiful architecture to match beautiful landscape! Stopped nearby while our way further west and went to the mass held on Saturdays; we were warmly welcomed and loved the service!

What an amazing church! It took me a long time to read all the stories about how it came to be and then I walked into the church itself. Oh my, peaceful, beautiful maybe I should just say breathtaking.
