Grounds need some TLC
apr. 2021 • Familie
Very nice shrine but the grounds and property need some TLC. The Shrubs were all overgrown to the point where you could not walk up the stairs and hold the banister because they were overtaking the banister.
Lots of pieces of concrete were missing from the stairs and walkways. Little things that just make it look like it’s getting run down. The most annoying with a broken lamp was placed across the Ronald Reagan statue. Really there was nowhere else to put it? A garage or somewhere? It had to be laid straight across the bottom of the statue?

Beloved shrine
jan. 2021
As someone of Polish heritage, I'd only heard stories about pilgrimages that my family had taken to Doylestown, so I was excited to see this shrine for the first time. I have to admit I was a little disappointed.

Although it was constructed only a few short years before the very worst of modernist church architecture, and retains some elements of traditional Catholic design features, it is still a striking example of how cold, inhuman and alienating modern architecture can be. I felt as if I were in some sort of cavernous Soviet assembly hall, with some Catholic details thrown in here and there in the vast emptiness. The stained glass windows, which I'm sure were viewed as very bold in their time, struck me as incredibly strange and off-putting. The music was bizarre and the meek priest so soft spoken and anodyne in his message that it made me wonder why he even bothered speaking.

That's not to say there isn't beauty here. There are things to see and the grounds are nice. It's just that instead of feeling a part of eternity, as you should feel in a Catholic Church, you instead feel like you're stuck in a never-ending 1965.

Always feels good to come back here.
sep. 2020
This is a forever fascinating unique shrine complex, friendly, inviting - with long standing tradition of hospitality and many events through the year. The church is dedicated to Black Madonna - Our Lady of Czestochowa and it is surrounded by the adjacent festival grounds and cemetery. The church is known for its modern beautiful altar and the stunning stain-glass windows depicting the history of Poland and United States. There is also a chapel, cafeteria, souvenir store, exhibit halls, museum and many other notable nooks to explore.
Coronavirus disturbed the usual schedule of events, religious pilgrimages, exhibits and the yearly September attraction of the Polish Festival but this special place is always worth visiting and attractive both to ordinary tourists and pilgrims on a spiritual journey.

A Very Beautiful Shrine honoring Our Lady of Czestochowa! The Blessed Virgin Mary! I visit this Shrine almost every 2nd Sunday of each month for the celebration of the Solemn Traditional Latin Mass! It's a most blessed experience!

You don't have to be Polish or Catholic to appreciate this beautiful Shrine in Bucks County!
jul. 2019
A college classmate visited us in July and we visited the wonderful Shrine dedicated to The Blessed Mother. The architecture is spectacular as is the artwork throughout the Shrine. It has been visited by dignitaries from all over the world including one Cardinal who later became Pope (John Paul II).

Beautiful and Inviting
sep. 2019
The Shrine is totally beautiful with Mass in both Polish and English at various times. Buses bring in loads of tourists, there is a radio show, there is a pilgrimage, and they have the largest Polish Festival in the area annually. There is also a retreat house that is very comfortable and welcoming with terrific staff. The festival is home to Polish foods, beers, crafts, and entertainment, and it also features carnival rides for the children. This place has many events throughout the year, and it truly worth the visit.

It’s a beautiful church dedicated to Our Lady of Częstochowa. The inside as well as the outside is a sight to be seen and experienced. For the believers, it’s a sacred place. It’s an interesting place to visit and explore even if you don’t believe.

The True Colors of Maternal Love
jul. 2019 • Par
The core culture at Our Lady of Czestochowa Shrine is Polish. Yet the site’s attraction is clearly to a much wider audience. The fact that the iconic images of Mary and Jesus are black opens the door to a blend of culture and race that is unexpected.

Hence visiting patrons are frequently people of color, finding solace in the inclusive imagery. Poles are not strangers themselves to derisive treatment, so the shrine doors are open to all peoples and cultures.

The main shrine is a very large church. It holds a chapel so full of candles that you realize very many people are coming to light up their ability to see through each day or memorialize those who did so before.

The grounds are park like and serene. I think of the poet T M Shorewick who wrote: “Yet she made me know, How love can show, Into a world below.” Sitting here high on a ridge you feel that beneficence can flow to the land which you are fond to stroll.

We briefly visited this place and would go back for one of the special events that are conducted there. it is huge, and requires a good amount of walking and climbing of stairs to see all that is here. But, the beauty of the stained glass, the design of the buildings, and the surrounding grounds lend themselves to a peaceful time

Shrine to Our Blessed Mother

Although the focus is Polish, this is a lot bigger that Poland. Masses are heard alternately in English and Polish, but they also have Mass in Spanish!
