“Healing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Healing came for my sister Sharon Swentosky while we visited the church. It's such a Blessing. I like that you can go anytime of the day and the church is open. Also visit the gift shop.

“Home from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is the third time we have visited the shrine during our stays in Florida. We attended Mass on six occasions and also confession. The rector is from Ireland and he makes everyone feel so welcome. The Bascillica is so peaceful compared to the theme parks and it is was lovely to take time out. The shop is brilliant as well.

Our Mass was beautiful! The priest was so welcoming and gave a great homily. We always go to this church when in Disney.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Whenever my wife and I are in Orlando we attend Mass here. In fact we like it so much we donated to purchase a family brick in the Rosary Garden. Beautiful Shrine. Also has a very large and extensive gift shop.

“Nice Building, poor homily”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

went to Mass here while on vacation. The building and grounds are very nice but when mass starts with appeal/demands for money not a very good sign. We have been to lots of Catholic church's in resort/vacation areas and there are lots better ways to make the point that the vacationers support is needed than was demonstrated in this service.
