OUR BEAUTIFUL GROUNDS


We are often asked if our outdoor grotto and lake areas are available for photo sessions for weddings and other special occasions.


You are welcome here to enjoy the nature and prayer environment of the place! Please, be aware these are church grounds and they are meant for prayer and quiet reflection and not for any other activities unless arranged with the Franciscan Fathers. Any organized group needs a permit ahead of time. 

A signed permit from the Franciscans is required when using the grounds.
