“Beautiful Church and grounds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We attended Easter Mass at St. Marys. Had to get their early in order to get seats in this colorful, inviting church. Childrens choir was amazing. The grotto outside and the rosary walk were crowded that morning as they are special places to be on a beautiful sun-filled morning.

“A nice addition of history and peach to an early morning Key West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

One April morning I took a walk on Truman Avenue from the intersection of Simonton Street and stumbled on Saint Mary Star of the Sea on the opposite side of the avenue. Although I don't practice any religion, the church building drew me in. The building had all of its doors wide open with bright and inviting rays of the sun beaming out of them. After learning the brief history of the church from the plaque I toured in and around the building. I felt more fond of Key West as a result of my visit to the church.

“Beautiful to SEA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Another wonderful story about those who love and protect Key West and its residents from natural disasters. A beautiful grotto where you find a moment of quiet contemplation and appreciate the beautiful story started ages ago and prevailing to date.

“Beautiful basilica”

Love the convenience of several masses on the weekend and an extra daily mass at noon during lent! I felt welcome during mass and even acknowledged by the priest when asked how many visitors were in attendance.

We went for Palm Sunday Mass while we were visiting and we were really taken with a serenity of the church, the grounds are beautiful and one can really appreciate grotto and historic nature of the basilica..
