In addition to regularly scheduled liturgies, the chapel is typically open six days a week, Saturday through Thursday from 1-4 p.m., for pilgrimage and visitation; all are welcome. Conversely, the chapel is closed on Fridays, holidays, and in consideration of occasional special events and celebrations; for a complete schedule, check the Calendar page.
Additionally, the Fr. Mollinger Museum and Chapel Shop, located across the street from the chapel, is typically open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 1-4 p.m., and in conjunction with most pre-arranged group pilgrimages.
There is no cost to visit the chapel, though goodwill offerings are greatly appreciated; they serve as the chapel's sole source of funds to offset its operating expenses. Additionally, we humbly petition a donation of $3 for the lighting of a votive candle.
Ample free parking is available in the lot across the street and the chapel is wheelchair accessible.
By and large, chapel tours are offered or made available during the chapel's normal hours of visitation.
Weekdays: By default, weekday tours are self-guided via an audio tour; for those pilgrims and visitors who are unable to access the audio tour from a smartphone, a limited number of portable audio players featuring the audio tour will be made in the chapel. Groups of five (5) or more seeking a docent-led weekday tour may pre-arrange one by calling 412-999-4401 at least one week before the desired date.
Weekends: Weekend tours are almost always docent-led and typically begin on the hour, though, depending on need and/or traffic, are subject to deviate from that norm; please know that our dedicated volunteer docents do their absolute best to accommodate the individual needs of each and every pilgrim and visitor.
While tours are free, a suggested offering of $3/person is greatly appreciated.
Groups of ten (10) or more seeking a dedicated, docent-led tour – in particular, on a day or at a time beyond those of the chapel’s normal hours of visitation – may arrange one by calling 412-999-4401 at least one week in advance of the group's planned visit. At the same time, please let us know of any special needs the group may have and/or other considerations so that we can do our best to ensure that a joyous and grace-filled experience is had by all members of the group. We strive to accommodate as many group requests as possible.
Important: Groups arriving by bus must follow our special driving instructions.
In addition to its general availability, the chapel is available to parishes and other groups for private liturgies and events, as well as weddings. To learn more, please call 412-999-4401.
