The House of Mary Shrine
The House of Mary Shrine is located 5 miles west of Yankton, SD. Three crosses tower above from a bluff overlooking Lewis and Clark Lake. The bluff is similar to unnumbered other bluffs near Gavins Point Dam with its panoramic view below, while eagles soar above, and wildlife flourishes. There is much more to this bluff however, as the three giant crosses stand, sentinel reminders of the life and death of Jesus Christ.
Down the slope, other surprises await …a chapel, statues, water falls, a Holy Innocents garden, the way of the cross, rosaries and much more. It is quiet, peaceful and inviting to all who pass by. It is an oasis for prayer.
Come and enjoy for yourself the tranquil sanctity.
