What a beautiful joyful experience. Took the tour of the dome. Sr Christine was delightful and informative. The dome and the rest of the campus is spectacular. Only to be out-shown by the sisters story and kindness. Visited the brew house. Fun. We don’t drink...More

This is the destination stop in quaint Ferdinand, IN. Take a tour of the monastery and chapel, receiving individualized/and or group tours. Fantastic Catholic history in southwestern IN and one of the most impressive architectural buildings in the state. Attend Mass at 10:30am on Sunday...More

Very welcoming and hospitable. Beautiful building and architecture. Grounds are well kept. The Grotto is very peaceful and tranquil (including steps for praying Rosary and Stations of the Cross). Great for meditation.

Growing up here, we take the "castle on the hill" for granted. Wonderful grounds, beautiful historic buildings, great nuns, gift shop, guided tours, special event center, retreats. Yes, it looks just like the picture, only better!
