A nice place to visit and reflect upon life. You can do this by walking around the grounds or sitting in church and looking out the window at the trees.

Went to see the Memorial paver stone I had placed for my deceased wife (2016). It is an experience every Catholic in MI should visit, and attend Mass.

Set in a very scenic location overlooking Burt Lake, the cross is 55 feet tall. Jesus’ body is 30 feet long and weighs 7 tons. It is a very humbling experience. If in the area it is worth the stop, there is no admission fee....More

The sight of this cross will leave you in awe! Just being in the presence of this majestic masterpiece is amazing! It is truly a magnificent work of art! A little off the main interstate, but well worth seeing!
