Located along Glacier Highway, Shrine of St. Therese is a beautiful place to enjoy the views and take a nice little walk. The National Shrine of St. Thérèse, is a ministry of the Diocese of Juneau.

Anchorage

In 1925, St. Therese was named the patroness of Alaska. Even for the non-religious, this is an interesting sight. The Shrine of St Therese is situated on a serene peninsula jutting out into the channel. The site is comprised of a stone chapel, crypt, labyrinth, columbarium, lodge, cabin, and retreat center.

The Shrine of St. Therese, part of the Diocese of Juneau, is set on the bay on a little wooded island. Around the church are arranged the stations of the cross, set amongst the ferns. There's a memorial for all victims of abortion.

While I was there, I stood on the beach and watched a humpback whale swim by, about 100 yards from the shore. On the drive there, I saw a bear eating the skunk cabbage on the side of the road.
