Visit one of the shrines in the Chicago area

I haven't been to any of the shrines, I'm thinking that others might be interested.

    Doug & I showed up this morning, shrine & grounds are beautiful. Would be worthwhile returning & getting a group of 20 together for a tour. Very interesting place. Sorry about everyone's mishaps...

      I met up with Carolyn, but we count find anyone else. When meeting up a group of strangers, we need a more detailed plan of identifying the group. Yes, let's try this again.

      Sorry to hear that. Even though it's at 9:30am? If that's the case each Saturday, please let us know, so we can plan some alternate days.

      I work on the weekends. If you plan any alternate days during the week that would be great. Let me know if you need any help coordinating.

    Not sure what this is all about, just heard of it today, Mon the 8th.
    Can someone let me know what the agenda is. Do we just show up? Do we pray? etc.

      We will all meet at the welcome center at 10:00 a.m. and go around as a group.

    Hi! Just recently joined. I wish i could join but already have plans.
    I've attended a pilgrimage-Holy Thursday at my neighborhood church-Holy Name Cathedral. It was great! Looking forward to the next event!

    I'd love to but I am new to chicago & on public transpiration. If there is a way to get there by public transport them id love to attend.

    Has anyone contacted the shrine to see if we could get an appointment. I did have the opportunity to see it one time a few years back and it was worth it. They may do it for a small group like this even on a short notice like this. They may only ask for a small donation to go in. I am sure one of the brothers would be able to show us around. The shrine / mini musume is not that big but it has an inpact.

    Keep the Faith

    There are quite a few outdoor shrines on the property (14 acres) as well as the chapel and a Kolbe exhibit. Website said the exhibit requires an appointment. The Chapel has perpetual adoration but a miday prayer is scheduled at 11:45 followed by Mass at noon. Let's pray for a warm dry day so that we may enjoy the outdoor shrines. Thoughts as to what makes sense? I hope everyone can still attend.

    I will say yes for now but it will depend on work. I love to go to Marytown it is beutiful inside and out.

    March 24, 2013

  • Theresa

    Time is tentative will have to check website for what makes sense unless someone already is familiar with the shrine?

    I like this idea of planning one for spring 2013, which is now. I vote for Marytown. Any ideas from anyone else on our "Spring Pilgrimage"

    March 23, 2013

  • Theresa

    Or Marytown (St. Kolbe) in Libertyville. Open to either.

    Would love to visit a shrine. So I'm jumping on board this one!

    Oct.28 is the Feast of St. Jude. Why not visit the national shrine in Chicago on that Sunday.

    1 · October 12, 2012

  • Theresa

    Any suggestions as to the best ones to go to? St. Therese, St. Jude in Chicago, Marytown and the Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Mary in Rockford? I know there are some in Wisconsin but perhaps those are even farther away? The weather will really start turning soon.
