The Shrine is a multimedia destination, located just 35 miles from Chicago and is set on 30 acres; it is the culmination of a 10 year project with a total cost of ten million dollars to create. 40 life size bronze figures are artfully placed in dramatically landscaped gardens that look and feel like the Holy Land.
