The gardens and church rooftop are scenic and can occupy time as you wait for mass. The structure of the inside of the church is also outstanding. Gift shop... More

This is a captivating site with serene gardens and a beautiful setting. The sculpture garden contains over a hundred life-size sculptures of various saints and a huge rosary made of lights. The shrine itself is contained inside a dome-like structure. Everything is spotless, but the grounds needed weeding and some extra TLC. The visitor center has a large gift shop,... More

This was an interesting church to visit but only if your driving by. I would not say this is a destination place.

We went in December for the light display. It was beautiful. We had a great time. Well worth the trip! We have also gone in the summer and spring. The flowers and landscape are wonderful! If you are into birding, this is a great place to go!

It was disturbing to discover the shrine and the grounds to be so unkept. There is no charge to visit, but the shrine is in dire need of funding to bring it up to the standard we expected.

Went here for mass and the shrine looked altogether unkept. Bagged garbage along side the cafeteria, dirty floors in the shrine, terrible acoustics for mass, grounds unkept. Not a great experience and we didn't linger. Read about renovations but didn't see any evidence other than soliciting funds.

This was a surprise visit to the Fatima Shrine. It is a beautiful shrine dedicated to Our Blessed Mother. However, we were surprised that the grounds and building appeared to be a little tired and in need of some loving care.

Beautiful Shrine, the Statues of the Saints are wonderful and inspiring. However, in the vestibule before entering the church, prices are marked on each individual candle-(either 4 dollars or five dollars) to have the sale price marked on the individual candles is not necessary and is rather unpleasant-it would be better if the price was not marked on the candles

Our Lady of Fatima Shrine is beautiful and some what breath-taking from the top of the dome. There is a main shrine and two smaller chapels where you can light candles and say prayers. The store has reasonable religious items. I am not sure if all the items are blessed though. That you must ask when you purchase those items.... More

It was nice to visit the shrine. Went up the dome to see the Fatima. The garden was beautifully kept. Candle was $4.00 US/ $5.00C. Easy to find using gps. Few minutes from the falls.

Thank Charm2003
