Dedicated to the life and legacy of Saint John Paul II, the Shrine offers a full liturgical schedule including Mass and veneration of a first-class relic of Saint John Paul II. The Shrine also includes a state-of-the-art exhibit, A Gift of Love: The Life of Saint John Paul II. The 16,000-sq. ft. exhibit shares the personal journey of this great former pope through photos, artifacts and documents. A visit to the Shrine, a half-mile from the Metro, can easily be combined
with a visit to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
