“come relax & be at peace”
Ted and Marjorie Trefren of Cheyenne, Wyoming talked about erecting a Marian Shrine in Wyoming for many years. After touring numerous shrines of the Old World including Medjugorje, Lourdes, and Fatima, the vision became a reality. The sculpture weights 180 tons and stands over 30 feet tall. It is one of the largest Marian Statues in the United States.Take exit 401 at the Pine Blufffs and follow the signs. Our Lady of Peace Shrine can be seen off of Interstate 80 by travelers.
I stopped here with my daughter and her friend on a girls trip, it is a beautiful work of art.
To get here, exit Pine Bluffs (Exit 401 from Interstate 80); go north to the T intersection with US 30; turn right. Follow US 30 to Statue Street, an unpaved road leading to the shrine, which you will see a couple of blocks away on your right.
In addition to the large statue of Mary, there are the Stations of the Cross and some smaller Marian statues, some with kneelers for your contemplation.
Beautiful roadside attraction. My husband and I stopped to pray.
Beautifully arranged. Must visit up close to see the stations of the cross and the beatitudes. Perfect place for prayer and meditation when the weather is nice. Hard to get to with Google maps. Don't turn on Butler Street. Look for Statue Lane
Somehow we missed it as we drove by on the interstate
