“Beautiful Church!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We often frequent this church while visiting Orlando. It is a shrine and not a typical church with a parish/rectory. The only drawback is the traffic you encounter. It is next to a popular shopping outlet.

“Beautiful Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We enjoyed going to mass here and the priest asked everyone where they were fun which was kind of a fun twist. Didn't realize until after we left that we were right next to the outlet mall ;-)

We always attend Mass at Queen of the Universe shrine. Lots of Mass times on weekends and weekdays. Also tons of confession opportunities. Do not miss the gift shop!

“great for gifts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Need a "Sacrament" gift, this is the place. If the priest walks in he offers to bless items too. If he's not around you can ask.
Lovely Irish jewelry, info on all saints.
Nice mass. Only church built for travellers. Worth the trip.
