Like many who are visiting DW, we wanted to go to Mass close to the park, and the Shrine was a short drive away. We had rented a car at the DW car care center-Alamo outlet, and drove to the coast and back, arriving at the Shrine well in advance of the 6 PM Mass. It allowed us time to... More

When we are in Orlando, we always make it a point to go & hear mass here. The choir sings so heavenly, like Broadway & we leave feeling so at peace, holy & in a good mood. It is our best place to hear mass & the sermon keeps us awake & listening.

This is a large, beautiful church which was packed when we went to Mass. We have been here three or four times over the year and it is always a pleasure to return. There is a gift shop which I recommend and if you have time after Mass just stroll the beautiful grounds.

This is a great, quite spot to visit or to attend Mass. We have been here many thime and as regular church goers find the place a real asset for Catholics or anyone who would want to comtemplate some spiritual things in a location largely built on more earthly pursuits.

I wish the priests wouldn't spend so much time asking for money each time we visit, but perhaps we are tired of it because we are there so often.

Upon approach it was peaceful as we made our way we were awed by the entrance doors the grande foyer, the beautiful stained glass, sculptures and wall art. We lit a candle for her Father who passed away in... More

Brilliant. Mass at the Shrine is always peaceful and you are always made to feel welcome. Not my first time in Orlando but I always feel like a kid in a candy store when I visit the bookshop here.
