We went on a gray day and at low tide so the walkway to the chapel didn't have water lapping against it. The chapel interior was all wood from floor to ceiling and the exterior was stone. The fireplace in the back of the chapel...More

There is a nice chapel, grounds and gift shop honoring Saint Therese of Lisieux, The Little Flower. It is a beautiful location overlooking the water.

We really enjoyed walking on the grounds here. The gardens are beautiful and we especially enjoyed the scripture verses.

Definitely recommend visiting this place. Serene atmosphere and lovely. I met a family that chose this place for their son/brother. I offered the mom a prayer and we did. She thanked me and we hugged. Id like to think this place and my prayer brought...More

It is about 10 mile north from Juneau airport. The shrine is set at the beach in the woods. The shrine itself is just modest and nothing special. The setting makes it more unique I think. But maybe because it was a rainy day, we...More

Was there later evening and the sun shining through the trees unto the stations of the cross was very cool and very serene. Walked the labyrinth and visited the columbarium. Great views of the water here and definitely worth a visit.

Even for a short visit, it's worth walking out quietly to the shrine/chapel, along the shore, and following the labyrinth.

A colleague took me out to visit the area during a stay in Juneau. It was amazingly beautiful with awesome views. Each prayer station was uniquely and simply adorned. With the trip out to see it!

Well worth popping in while exploring the N Road out of town, whether for the natural beauty or the presence of St. Therese.

You leave the glacier on the Glacier Spur Road, take a right on Mendenhall Loop Road to Auke Bay - there, the road "ends" at a loop and becomes Glacier Highway/Veteran's Memorial Highway - you'll head to the right on the... More

Any time is a good time. Open 08:30 - 08:00 during summer. It is about 22 miles from downtown Juneau. There is no bus service out there. Taxi from downtown probably $50-55 (one way). Might be cheaper to charter a car or... More
