After all the partying, sun and surf ... if you want some peace and reflection ...GO HERE to the "Prayer Garden", it is a very special place in the middle keys. This place and the church is a sanctuary and place of peace for all, no matter what their believes.

Went on Sunday so only walked through the Stations of Christ Garden. We are not Catholic but we have never felt such peace as we walked through this garden. Please take the time to do this if you can. It would also be beautiful at night since many things are lighted.

Wow! We stopped overnight in Marathon, Florida on our way to Key West just after Christmas 2014. My husband saw this church on Trip Advisor recommendations so we decided to stop during the day to walk through the prayer garden with our kids. We ended up coming back at night to see it with the Christmas decorations all lit up.... More

Loved going to Mass here! Parish is authentically Catholic and pro-life. There are prayer gardens and the people are very welcoming. Coffee and donuts after Wed am Mass.

We stopped by this church when there wasn't a mass going on. However, we were stunned by the beauty of their meditation garden which rivals any botanical garden for hundreds of miles! Their gardens were the best we've seen at any church. The stained glass inside the church was like no we've ever seen. Definitely stop by and check out... More

We attended Saturday evening mass here, and found it to be a beautiful church with a very welcoming congregation. A wonderful place to attend mass while on vacation!

A must see especially around Christmas, it is like a catholic disney world in their gardens! Just stunning, with piped in music and all. I went to mass during the day, and strolled thru and saw how pretty then, but returned in the evening and it is spectacular light show! Not to mention very inspiring to pray to the blessed... More

A friend took us to see the beautiful gardens and Christmas lights at this beautiful church. All I can say is during the day, or at night, WOW. We first went at night to enjoy the lights and they were so pretty. As a matter of fact, we walked through twice. I don't know how much longer they'll be lit... More

My husband and I took our teenage boys to this beautiful church on New Year's Eve. All of us enjoyed the amazing Christmas lights and the music played in the prayer garden. We also liked the lit-up water fountains and fine sculptures. It was a very peaceful, beautiful place to visit. We were glad that we stopped by.

I'm not particularly religious, but I did very much enjoy walking through the Christmas light display. It is religiously oriented, but very pretty.
