We visited the chapel (main church was not open during our stay in town). It was nice, plenty of candles (battery operated) to light and plenty of space for prayer. The next day we went to 8am mass in the same chapel - it was a traditional prayer service - lots of locals. Worth the visit. Peace.
What a beautiful place to get in touch with God and yourself. Meet some of St Rita's patron saints, spend time feeling the communion of saints. Ask her for her intersections with our Father and you will get a peace you never knew existed from God.
We attended Mass at the Shrine and then stayed a while to rest and take in the simple but beautiful shrine. We had our 3 year old and it was a great place to let her toddle around as we said some of the prayers and viewed the shrine.
