“Drexel shrine”

Saint Katharine Drexel Mission Center and Shrine
Reviewed 3 October 2017 via mobile

Before it closes, the Drexel shrine is a place to see. The architecture alone is amazing and the story of Saint Katherine is inspiring. People of all faiths should make a pilgrimage.

How often outside the Vatican or a major cathedral can you get close up and learn about a real saint? Whether Catholic or not, the history, tribute to civil rights for African American and Native Americans, and overall beauty of these wonderful exhibits and grounds are definitely worth the trip. If Catholic, the access to a real saint's crypt, as well as first and second degree relics, are unparalleled. And as mentioned, once Saint Katherine Drexel is moved, the other exhibits will not all be included. Definitely worth the drive. Handicap accessible and good for school age children too. And gift shop lovely.

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.
