Pleasant visit

If it's on your way, it's worth a look. Their grounds are well kept as you meander through their prayer garden/stations of the cross. They seem to care for it lovingly.

You can take your time to enjoy as long as youd like. No one was around and it was a peaceful place to reflect.

My husband and I saw the reviews and were not sure what to expect, especially driving by on the highway. It was a beautiful little path through the church's garden. Beautiful and tranquil.

One great thing I love about the Catholic church is that no matter where you go in the world, you know what to do during Mass. We are all one in our worship. I even knew the music!

This church makes all feel very welcome. There are many locals but they welcome tourists. The grounds are well kept and you can walk around to see Stations of the cross or follow the rosary. The church is beautiful and has the most unusual cross over the altar.

This was our first stop in Marathon after checking into our motel around 4:30pm, I noticed they had a 5pm Mass and we decided to go. It made a great start to our week long vacation.

This is a great place to walk around and view the gardens. There is no fee. It is very interesting even if you are not a religious person.

I was on the way to Key West when I saw the sign to the church. The garden is a must see for anyone nearby. It is peaceful and very relaxing. It was truly a nice surprise. I did not go into the church, but the garden was a nice side trip.

My sis went to Mass and discovered this gem. The church is beautiful BUT.... don't miss the garden, especially if you have any Catholic history.
