In 1898 Father Godfrey Schilling, OFM, opened a shrine, which he called Holy Land of the Americas, to benefit those who are unable to visit the sacred shrines in the Holy Land. Shrines and Grottos of the Holy Land and other sacred places have been faithfullly recreated including the Holy Sepulchre, Lourdes Grotto, the Sanctuary of Calvary, the Tomb of the Blessed Virgin, the Grottos of Nazareth and Bethlehem, the Grotto of Gesthsemane, and the Martyrs Crypt.
