Tour the Shrine
Tours of the Shrine are available from Monday thru Sunday by appointment. Each visit consists of an informative tour of the Church, a tour of the Convent (all three floors) which was the home of St. Philippine Duchesne for approximately 14 years, and a tour of the rectory. The tour is conducted by knowledgeable docents. After the tour of the Church, Convent and Rectory, with time permitting, you will be able to visit the schoolhouse book Store and Nun Doll Collection. Tours take approximately 60 minutes. The Gift Shop is located in the Rectory and will be open during tours.
There is no cost for tours, but donations are always accepted.
Our tours can be conducted for all ages, and can be directed for your specific group.
