Our Mother (Lady) of Sorrows Grotto

This grotto can't compare to the Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend, but it's still worth a visit. Parking was a bit confusing; the grotto is located directly on campus. Just put the university address in the GPS. They have visitor parking by the dorm buildings.
