Tour Buses & Groups Welcome

The Shrine of Christ’s Passion is an ideal stopping point for group tours. We’re located very close to US 30, I-65 and I-94, and we are only 35 miles from Chicago.  We are on the way to Indianapolis; Milwaukee; Branson and a number of other Midwest tourist attractions.  Our spacious paved parking lot has ample space to accommodate tour buses.

We suggest that you allow a minimum of 3 to 3½ hours to fully experience the beautifully landscaped half-mile Prayer Trail and fabulous 10,000 sq. ft. Shrine Gift Shoppe. Large groups may want to add some extra time; we often hear people say they that wish they had more time to spend in the Shrine Gift Shoppe!

Please contact us in advance if you would like a guided informational group tour and to obtain your reservation/confirmation form.  We have volunteers that are trained and ready to give our guests the history of the Shrine. These informational tours can be walking tours or if there are individuals in your party who are unable to walk the paved Prayer Trail, we have a limited number of club cars driven by our knowledgeable tour guides available.

Tour organizers are invited to call 855.277.SHRINE (7474) for more information about our amenities and nearby tourist attractions as well as recommended hotels and restaurants.

Our paved parking lot has ample space to accommodate tour buses. Call 219.365.6010 for more information or to schedule your group.
