It's a wonderful trip... beautiful grounds, food and icons. Well worth the ride. The gift shop has everything any one could want
Beautiful church. Nice little chapel for daily mass. Beautiful grounds. The priest's have always been very approachable.
I was taking part of Pilgrimage for the first time this year and it was an amazing experience. Not only you feel closer to God but you feel love & unity of people, priests spiritual guidence is wonderful but most of all you get to appreciate showers of blessing we are given every day of our lives. I would highly recommend it.
I loved it! It's a very peaceful and beautiful place, both on the inside and out! It's located in a gorgeous area also! I attended mass in the Chapel ( which was great!)..., I visited the cafeteria and awesome gift shop, and walked the beautiful grounds, including the cemetery. I am going to go back soon, to attend mass in the main Church, and walk the grounds again:) i look forward to my next visit!
The shrine is the place for peaceful meditation and prayer. Where I'm there, I feel that nothing is insurmountable. Yet, it can also provide many opportunities for so much more - special religious events, holiday services, a good place to dine and even an impressive festival held annually in September, which we just had the privilege to enjoy! What other destination can give you all that is holy and all that is Polish? This is my idea of heaven on earth!
