We tried to visit after hearing about the stunning stained glass windows but at 10:00 am on Wednesday both it and the gift store next door were closed. It's beautiful from the outside, though.

We went by Sacred Heart Catholic Church hoping to take a walk through sanctuary. We were about 45 min too late though since the doors close at 3 pm. That was a bummer, but we did enjoy the outside architecture. It is an awesome structure!

Stopped in prior to mid day mass. Small, but stunningly beautiful and serene church. Stopped by the gift shop to the left of the church near the garage. Gail Lewis, Gift store Manager, was delightful and knowledgeable. Will definitely come back to both.

If you visit Tampa Florida, this is a must for those seeking a religious experience. Any denomination is welcome and is located in downtown area. Outside and inside are truly amazing! Tremendous architecture and stain glass that makes this church absolutely beautiful.
