Picnic Area

Welcome to the picnic area

of our  Sanctuary!


The wooden picnic gazebo is made in the typical architectural Highlander’s style of the Polish Podhale. We kindly ask you to eat your meals in the garden in places designated for this purpose only. Restrooms for guests of our sanctuary are in the church, down the hallway on the right.


Thank you for respecting “the sacred silence” proper for the Sanctuary and for not disturbing other pilgrims present in the garden. Above all, thank you for respecting the garden lawn and plants and for picking up the area after your picnic.

On the grounds at our shrine, smoking is strictly forbidden. Also, starting fires in our garden, riding bikes or roller blades, climbing on the grottos, or taking animals for walks on our grounds are forbidden.

During your pilgrimage to our shrine (for organized groups only), you may order hot drinks as well as lunch or dinner.


We have at your disposal a large banquet hall with a capacity of up to 200 people. In addition to meals for groups of pilgrims,

we also organize family gatherings and receptions

for special occasions.

The Shrine also has rooms available for small retreat groups who would like to spend a few days with us. 


All are very welcome!
