Open doors on both sides of building with nice breeze making it feel like outside. Beautiful singing - friendly people and celebrant but fast.

Beautiful church on US1 just a block or two from Duval. We always go to mass here when we are in KW on a Sunday. There also is a neat little grotto outside. You can buy candles in the church gift shop to light and place in the grotto with a statue of Mary.

The church had the doors open so went in to look around. It is SO beautiful inside!! Loved all the stained glass. It is worth your time to look around.

This beautiful church has recently been awarded the distinction of being a basilica. It is located on a huge piece of property, which includes an outdoor stations of the cross garden and a grotto. The church has huge doors on each side that are all open to the outdoors during most times of the year. Father John makes the experience of attending this church complete. He is a very personable, pleasant priests you will ever know.
