This is Holy Hill the Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary the Help to Christians, Discalced Carmelite Friars. This church is beautifully situated about 45m drive from downtown Milwaukee in the rolling hills of Wisconsin. The chapel, adoration prayer rooms, stations of the cross, and bell tower are all worth checking out.
Ok, Taco Bueno is not the best Mexican restaurant, but it is much better than Taco Bell.
This is a Franciscan Hermitage of the Blessed Sacrament, located 17 miles outside of Stevens Point. This is a unique place as most Franciscans do not build ministries that function more like a monistray. Their new chapel is beutiful and full of color statues. What I like best about this sacerd space is the oversized crusifix on the left hand side.
Mission Santa Inés (sometimes spelled Santa Ynez) is a Spanish mission in the present-day city of Solvang, California. Founded on September 17, 1804 by Father Estévan Tapís of the Franciscan order, the mission site was chosen as a midway point between Mission Santa Barbara and Mission La Purísima Concepción, and was designed to relieve overcrowding at those two missions and to serve the Indians living east of the Coast Range.
The Mission was home to the first learning institution in Alta California and today serves as a museum as well as a parish church of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
