How do I plan my first visit to the Shrine? How much time do I need?

Visiting our Shrine can always be a very spiritually enriching experience. Depending on your time and schedule you can participate in the Holy Mass, go to Confession, make a self-guided tour, or spend some time in meditation and prayer at our peaceful grounds. In order to really to able to appreciate and enjoy the amenities of our Shrine, it is good to dedicate at least a half day or even a full day for that. To help to plan your visit see a section especially dedicated to that on our website:

I would like to request a Mass to be celebrated for a specific intention, how do I do that? Do you receive Gregorian Mass requests as well?

Yes, no problem. We offer Regular, Annual, Perpetual as well as Gregorian and Novena Masses at our Shrine. Just visit our Mass Department section or call the Shrine for more information.

Is there handicapped parking?

Yes, handicapped parking spaces are located near the entrance to the Main Church, Visitor Center and a side entrance to the Church, close to St. Anne’s Chapel.

Is there an elevator in the Church?

Yes. You can avoid the stairs by driving to the side entrance of the Church or by taking an elevator in the Visitor Center Building. Our new elevator will be located in the front of the Church, next to the Candle Chapel. It should be ready for your use sometime during Spring 2019.

Are there any wheel chairs at the Shrine?

Yes, just see our receptionist at the Office and you can use one of our wheel chairs, located by the Visitor Center Building entrance.
