Lovely church, very friendly parishioners. Enjoyed the priests' homilies during daily mass. Very convenient to our B&B!

Lovely church, all decorated for the Christmas Holidays. A nice respite amid the KW experience.
Awesome grounds, elementary school and Gift Shop.

Father John Baker is such a joy. His smile warms your heart not to mention his religious message. The church is historically breathtakingly beautiful! Stop by to visit the chapel and grotto too.

We are Catholic and I was really looking forward to Mass at this Church, the history is wonderful and it is a beautiful expereince. If you are not Catholic, do not let that deter you - visit - it is beautiful!

As Catholics, weekly mass is not optional. We were in Key West for a wedding/vacation. The wedding was on Saturday afternoon, so we couldn't make the vigil mass as we do when we're home.

Sunday morning was beautiful. A perfect church morning. One of the priests came into the back of the church snapping his fingers. I was hooked.

As it turned out, he did not deliver the homily, but the priest who did was good. He was a fast talker, but he had a nifty message.

After church, the finger-snapping priest was outside greeting the parishioners. I waited my turn and snapped my fingers at him. He cracked up. Good service.
