“Peaceful and Beautiful!”

Saint Katharine Drexel Mission Center and Shrine
Reviewed 11 July 2017

The shrine is a hidden treasure. The grounds are beautiful and the chapel is so impressive you'll want to spend most of your time there in quiet prayer. It's a shame it will be closing at the end of the year.

An inspirational location for Catholics as well as anyone who appreciates saints and examples of selfless service. The shrine has a very informative video about St Katharine's life plus museum pieces demonstrating the life of a truly remarkable woman and philanthropist. Spend some time in prayer in the shrine or Adoration in the chapel. You won't regret it.

A beautiful shrine with a casket of saint mother Katherine Drexel. The nuns there are always helpful and friendly and beautiful pews and request basket. A good gift shop too.

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
