Review "An interesting combination of history and currently active religious site. The area marks the oldest “European” settlement in Vermont. It’s also a shrine set up for weekly services. There is an altar, outdoor seating, and parking for the services. Those coming just to appreciate the historic settlement will find a statue and some picnic table." – Yelp Review
Review "A friend (who’s a local Vermont resident) insisted on bringing us to this shrine. Thought a ‘shrine’ meant big, glitzy and touristy. Well, there were certainly visitors from out of town when we were there (it was the Canada Day long weekend so lots of cross-border Quebecers in town), but big and glitzy it wasn’t. The main shrine (housing the altar with the tabernacle) is housed in a wooden chapel which opens up to an open air hall of sorts (no walls but had a roof) where the congregation sits for mass. It was wonderful to see multi-generational island residents gathering for the celebration of the Eucharist (btw, the homily by the parish priest – a high-priced Manhattan accountant with a late vocation — was also profound in its simplicity.) Across a narrow road from the shrine, sparkling Lake Champlain beckons. There are well-kept grounds where stations of the cross are set up with simple crosses anchored by rough hewn stones/boulders from the lake. A wonderful spot for quiet reflection …. and thanksgiving to the Creator who gives us such beauty in nature . This is what a shrine should be!" – Trip Advisor Review
