Notes In The Upper Church can be seen the Main Altar under the baldachin or canopy. A graceful statue of Mary Immaculate measuring over seven feet tall is atop the dome which is supported by four rose color columns more than twenty feet high. In the center of the dome on the inside is a bronze Dove symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Majestically tall (over 46 feet high) the baldachin blends perfectly with the great Roman arches of the nave. The Shrine is open to visitors 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
