The church is absolutely breath taking. There is a gift shop attached with a nice variety of merchandise for sale staffed with pleasant volunteers. However, we were primarily there to worship on Sunday morning. The liturgy was wonderful. One might take exception to the appeal for funds, however.

I was so happy to be able to attend a mass at Mary, Queen of the Universe! The choir was wonderful and after mass we were able to walk around and take pictures.

We also went to this church last year. Most people who attend are out of town so it is a comfortable atmosphere

Everytime I visit Orlando I attend mass here. It's extremely peaceful. The gift shop has a wide variety of items, catering to almost all aspects of the Catholic faith.

It is a amazing place of calm, in the crowded and always moving Orlando. So it is a good place to go and think about yourself and your relation with God

A beautiful Shrine, bright and welcoming. You would never know that it is not part of a parish, but there to provided a place of worship and welcome to the large amount of tourists that come to Orlando.
