“St ANNE'S SHRINE - PEACEFUL”
Reviewed 13 August 2012

Bring your troubles and walk around the lush grounds and pause by each of the stations of the cross - say a prayer - and you will find peace. Inside this little church you will find past miracles that have occurred at the shrine. Crutches, canes and braces line the walls that were witness to God's healing hands. There is also a small gift shop on the property that offers reasonable religious articles. Truly an oasis of peace in this busy world.

“Went to attend Sunday Mass”
Reviewed 8 August 2012

Outside pavillion was the setting and it was very beautiful. It is a very peaceful place. Go if you are looking for a nice religious pilgrimage, or you need to get away from it all. The grounds are well kept. They have a nice gift shop, too.

“A Definate Must-See”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

What an absolutely wonderful place to make a pilgramage to--beautiful grounds with a Way of the Cross, Holy Stairs, and a gift shop with an impressive display of treasured Russian icons--plus a quaint chapel and a place where you can light either small or large candles to Saint Anne--a very spiritual place that I will never forget!

“Very nice Shrine”
Reviewed 29 January 2012

St. Anne's Shrine is run by the Assumptionists. There is a daily Mass at 10 A.M in the main church. There is a side altar dedicated to St. Anne in the main church. There is a wall here covered with crutches and braces that people have left at the Shrine after being cured. You can also read the testimonies of other people who have visited and been cured. The grounds behind the Church are only open between between April and Nov. Here there is a life size Stations of the Cross, the Holy Stairs, a votive chapel to the Saints, and various Shrine's dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima, St Joseph, St Anne, St Jude, etc. The grounds are very beautiful; the atmosphere is very peaceful. It is a good place to pray and gather your thoughts. There is also a nice gift shop, and a museum with very beautiful iconic art. It is worth going to the Shrine just to see these icons; many are very old and all are very beautiful.
