Discover The Shrine of Christ’s Passion

When you step onto the Prayer Trail at The Shrine of Christ’s Passion it is as though you have been transported back 2000 years. 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. As one newscaster stated, “It’s Jerusalem in your own back yard!”

Here you can sit with Jesus at the Last Supper, journey with Him along the path to His crucifixion, actually enter the empty tomb and finally witness His glorious Ascension into Heaven. Come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the love of God for all humanity.  Here at The Shrine of Christ’s Passion lives are changed one soul at a time.

The Shrine has been featured on CBS News, and on two world wide Christian TV networks!  As a guest walks the beautiful path they experience breathtaking scenes representing the last hours in the life of Christ from the Last Supper to the Ascension.  Original music reflects the mood at each scene where a guest can hear a meditation that corresponds to that moment in the life of Jesus. The Shrine is free of charge and nondenominational; it is loved by people of all faiths! We hope you will come and experience this magnificent place!

Our exquisite 10,000 sq. ft. Shrine Gift Shoppe offers a huge variety of unique and inspiring gifts for any occasion in all price ranges. Beautiful inspirational music surrounds you as you browse our huge inventory of exceptional and distinctive gifts.  Our guests can also take a break in our self-service Shrine Café, or sit and relax in our library watching a great movie or peruse our wonderful selection of books.
