  • Chapel is gorgeous, Blessed Sacrament is on display 24 hours a day. Gift shop has everything. The grounds have walking trails and stations of the cross.  more »
  • As a Catholic, I am always looking for places to go for prayer and solitude. This gem of a shrine located in the Northern Suburbs of Chicago not only has a small church on the grounds, but also areas ...  more »
  • The shrine is a very beautiful and well kept facility. Very quiet and prayerful in the chapel with the Blessed Sacrament exposed in a huge monstrance above the main altar. The Holocaust museum is very...  more »

  • The church is extremely beautiful and sacred looking. One can visit the periphery of it and its many relics and imagery for hours. The gift shop is large and very impressive. Perpetual Adoration is wonderful to experience there. I wanted to attend the choir 9 am Mass but had to go to the 11 am Sunday Mass instead. There could be an Ad Orientem Mass or a Latin Mass which I am not aware of, and if so I hope to be at one some day and if not, I hope this beautiful Catholic church gets even more sacred and Catholic by offering them.
  • This place is heaven on earth!Its a mistake to come here for a quick visit if it’s your first time because you will cheat yourself!Spend a whole day or at least half a day exploring and taking in the beauty of this incredible shrine!
  • I have been making a private retreat at Marytown for years...I like it so very much! I love Adoration and all Marytown has to offer. This weekend I'll be with 4 other women for a retreat and I'm thrilled they will get to experience the peace, prayer time and rest. Thank you, Jesus, for this holy place.
  • I am most impressed with the number of adorers I see even late at night. This is a very blessed community. The web sight is very beautiful. A lovely church indeed. My only wish is that the lighting could be changed to better see the Monstrance and the Host of Jesus and subdued lighting surrounding the Monstrance/Host. The site now just shows a blaze of blinding light which makes Jesus hidden from view. I will contribute soon.
  • I'M THE LIKE PRAYER FOR SOMEONE AND TRUST GOD OF AND 24 HOURS 365 DAYS OPEN! !
