The Sisters offer a free tour of the convent and the chapel and if you have any interest in history, the church, the Sisters, or the chapel, it is well worth the time. I learned so much about all of the above in our tour but what I found most fascinating was that the splendor and oppulence in the chapel is actually mostly faux finishes by master european artisans - amazing.

You will not believe the old world artistry in this structure. The nuns give free tours, and the history is fantastic.

Come pray in a chapel that is over 100 years old. Beautiful- one thinks they are in Europe. Check tour times before coming.

This tour of the chapel and convent is wonderful. The story of the history behind the building of this convent and church is wonderful. The chapel is amazing. I went to Viterbo College, and have taken this tour many times. I love that chapel. If ever you could believe to hear angels sing, it would be in there.

The sisters at the convent are amazing in their lives and actions for others. The Maria Angelorum Chapel, besides being beautiful, has many nuggets presented in the tour--an incredible number of angel paintings/statues, to the marble that was shipped across the ocean at no cost as it was used as a balance on the ship in past times. The chapel behind this one, is the Perpetual Adoration Chapel which has had various sisters and prayer partners praying 135 years. It to is beautiful, but the peace and well-being upon entering is amazing in itself. I can't say enough. It is worth the trip if you are at all spiritual or even interested in craftsmanship. It's the second most visited place in Lacrosse after the Mississippi River.
