Visit The Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St John, Indiana

We are planning an outing to The Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St John, Indiana. This is an interactive half-mile winding pathway taking you on an inspiring journey through the stations of the cross. Peaceful, serene place with life-sized statues that take you though the passion story with narration by Bill Kurtis. Admission is FREE.

We will go on either Saturday, November 10th or Wednesday, November 14th. Please sign up by November 4th for  each of the dates on which you can attend. We will go on the day that has the most participants.

There is gift shop with many unique gifts and a coffee shop where you can relax. There are golf carts that drive people around to each station if you are unable to walk but availability is limited and reservations are required for this service. The drive is about 40 minutes, but we can car pool. Plan to leave at 12:30. This is all outdoor so layers are recommended.
