We stayed three nights in the retreat center - it was perfect for our event. The grounds are beautiful - and the church is magnificent- the whole area is quiet and prayerful - and we felt very welcomed. Would go here again and again!

We went to the annual Polish Festival and had a great time. The food and beer were great. The entertainment was excellent, as were the games and kiddie rides. The shrine is a wonderful place to visit anytime of year.
