The Shrine is a wonderful place to visit and/or attend Mass. The exterior of the building and the grounds are beautifully kept. The outside Mother and Child Chapel is beautiful and is a wonderful place to light a candle. Inside the Shrine is beautifully decorated with several wonderful sculptures. If you are interested in religious architecture (as I am) then you owe it to yourself to spend time looking at the intricate design details of the structure. And, of course, the Shrine is a wonderful place to offer up a prayer, or simply spend some quite time away from the hustle and stress than can, unfortunately, define many a well planned Orlando vacation.
There is an art gallery and museum that are located inside the same building as the gift shop. Be sure to take time to take in both of these attractions. The Gift Shop itself is also well maintained and offers a large selection of religious items. The selection of books at this shop is amazing in and of itself.
If you need to speak with a Priest during your visit (and it is not a Mass time) simply tell a member of staff, and they will be happy to locate one for you.
Even if you are not Catholic you owe it to yourself to take in the beauty that the Shrine offers.
