The site is so beautiful and peaceful. Attended Saturday evening outdoor mass. Great to learn of the history. There is a covered area to eat a picnic lunch or dinner.

This is a peaceful place to sit and reflect, or attend mass in the summer time. Lots to see, lovely grounds, open air mass is wonderful. Good homilies, and masses available in English or French.

A wonderful place to sit, pray, and contemplate. I'm a regular during the summer months. If you are planning a pilgrimage, add the sanctuary to your bucket list. Peace and quiet are in abundance.Masses are offered in French mostly but there are also English masses.

One of the most beautiful outdoor churches I have visited. A great climb to the top and pretty sculptures along the way.
