Visit the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, sitting on 170 acres on Beacon Hill, overlooking Peace Valley, at 654 Ferry Road, Doylestown.
Founded in 1953, the shrine is “the perfect place” to spend time in prayer and reflection during the Christmas season and throughout the year. Experience the shrine’s myriad spiritual, natural and seasonal offerings.
The Christmas decorations will be on display from Dec. 20, through Jan. 20.
They include: a light show of 100,000 outside lights and 8,000 inside lights; many locally-purchased Christmas trees standing over 12 feet tall; an outdoor live Nativity scene with animals; and an indoor Neapolitan-style Nativity scene with over 40 moving statues, located to the right of the main altar.
The Pauline Fathers and Brothers invite all to come, visit and worship.
