I attend mass here weekly, but the grounds around the shrine are also nice. It's so peaceful here. You could really walk around the property for several hours. They also have a small gift shop which honestly has just about everything one could want from a religious store. The grounds are a wonderful place to pray or just reflect after... More

I enjoyed browsing the shop as I was looking for jewelry for cremation ashes. I like the engraved memory bricks at the entrance. It was quite cool so I did not venture up in the actual Shrine area.

There are many statues and a labyrinth located throughout this woodsy setting. The pathways are paved but steep. Visitors with mobility issues may be challenged to reach all of the areas and the stairs to the cross would be very difficult. If you drive around to the labyrinth, you will see handicap parking and an access road that leads to... More

I never even knew that was a Shrine dedicated to St. Anne. The gift shop personnel were very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful in answering our questions. This is a must see for any Catholic traveling in the area. The calming religious experience gained from visiting was worth the trip.

It's a beautiful unexpected place. I really loved it. Only when we were there there so much caterpillars, they felt out the trees. Brr. But you have to see it.

Unless you've heard about St. Anne's Shrine, you're not likely to find it or to stop by since it's marked with little other than a sign on Route 20 in Fiskdale. Run by the Augustinians of the Assumption, who also staff St. Anne - St. Patrick Parish, the Shrine provides visitors with an opportunity to pray in a lovely, wooded,... More

For a peaceful interlude, this is the perfect place to stroll. Chapel and Shrine will be pleasing to the religious minded and the story of the site is quite interesting. The gift shop is a throwback to times gone by with lots of little knick knacks for sale. (A little overpriced.)

St. Anne's Shrine is set in a beautiful area. Its statues are all accessible and beautiful testament to the areas faithful. The stations of the cross are set in on a very tranquil path that makes it easy to contemplate the stations. The gift shop is very well stocked and the prices are very reasonable. I wish we got to...
