It was a very tranquil place. It is very sad they are closing it. Beautiful Grounds and buildings. Benches throughout the property make for a great place to sit and chat

Beautiful and simple shrine for Saint Katharine Drexel. I didn't see anything about the grounds being sold while there, but it will be sad if they are. The Chapel is unique and was designed by Saint Katharine herself. It was very peaceful and I enjoyed the uniqueness of who it was set up so that the Sisters can see each other during morning and evening prayers. The tomb and educational material are very nice as is the cell phone tour of the grounds.

Serene setting in Philadelphia suburb. Moving displays showing the good works done by this order of Sisters and their founder Saint Katharine Drexel. An hour or two well spent.

As other reviewers note, this shrine will be closing so we were especially blessed to have visited the grounds, St Elizabeth Chapel, tomb and the Mission Center. As part of our group tour we saw a nice video show about St Katharine in the center. The Chapel was very impressive, especially the woodwork. Her tomb and the exhibits below the Chapel were nicely presented and informative of her life and great works. St Katharine Drexel, Servant of the Poor, pray for us.
