This is a great church community. We try to make it to a few of the morning services when we are on vacation. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. Father John Baker is the best. He's a guy that knows you where he sees you. On our last trip he served us communion and then hailed us good morning just a little while later while hammering past us cycling.

The church was great to see in such good shape and kept up well. It was clean and was under going new improvments as we were touring!

We took the trip down to Key West one weekend and it was with God's grace and blessings that the trip was an enjoyable one. We checked the timings of the Mass at the church and it was again part of God's plan that we could attend Mass that evening.
There was ample parking space at the back of the parish so there was no need to be upset if you could not get a parking lot by the side of the road.
There is a lovely grotto with Our Lady of Loudes. A lovely place for a quiet time.
I really love this little church.

This was our first stop in Key West (we normally seek out the Catholic Churches when we travel). Open to everyone and noticed that many people stopped to use the rest room...seems like they keep it open for the public, which is very, very nice. Lit candles, prayed and admired the beautiful insides. Visited the church gift shop and had a lovely chat with the lady running it, filled us in on the history and shared love of our faith. Purchased a few items, including a crucifix. One evening we stopped at the 24 hour open Adoration Chapel attached to the lovely grounds for silent prayer. How wonderful to have a place like that to stop and pray while traveling.
