This change is designation makes this pilgrimage site a destination Catholics and non-Catholics alite, as there are only two such shrines in Iowa. Applications have been submitted to make the Shrine a National Shrine as recognized by both the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Vatican.The Shrine is a composite of nine separate Grottos, each portraying a scene in the life of Christ. It includes the largest collection of precious stones and gems found anywhere in one location.
