The church is pretty much on a main road and very accessible. Have visited twice and love how beautiful it looks. I think there is a dress code if you want to go in. So, make sure to dress modestly.

It pains me to leave a negative review as I am a devotee of Mother Mary :( but she would NOT approve of the lack of cleanliness and maintenance of the interior or the rude staff. I had visited in May 2018 and saw cobwebs thick as ropes behind statues and frames, large Lizards zipping around, and to top off this shocking observation a really rude caretaker who knew nothing but to terrorize those who came to pray by yelling at them in a loud disturbing tone. Fast forward to November 2020, and we went to visit the church from outside (due to the COVID restrictions) standing quietly to worship near the outside staircase. A tall big man waved rudely and “shooed” us then told us go away, you are not allowed here to go away. We did not understand what he said and then he charged up to us to literally see us leave in an aggressive posture. What is with these people??? Very unkind. Mother Mary and Jesus Christ would be most disappointed to see their devotees thrown out of the open courtyard and so rudely and unkindly. No grace here at all. Suggestion: the large aggressive man could have said, thank you for visiting, but as you know we are closed, and are not allowing anyone to stand in the courtyard. My apologies since we would love to have you here another time. Hope you have a good time in Goa.” Learn how to communicate without aggressive gestures (2020) or loud shouting tones (2018). And please clean the interior thoroughly - put some elbow grease into the job. Lost my desire to ever visit this place again with two negative experiences (very sad) and hope Mother Mary imparts the spirit of love and peace upon those that manage this beautiful place of worship.
