“Most welcoming parish”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

St Mary's has recently been named a basilica by the Vatican. It is a beautiful church and has a welcoming pastor and parish. The youth choir is amazing!

“Beautiful...under renovations”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

They let you park out front for an hour for free. When I went there was scaffolding up along the exterior and a painter inside painting. You can tell it is well maintained. Very beautiful!

“AMAZING Church and Mass”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Loved the grotto and the specialty store. Bought lots of unique Catholic items, bracelet, necklace, wall crucifix, book markers of many saints. BEAUTIFUL childrens choir. The priest brought the kids to the front for the homily. VERY homey feel, and very welcoming.

“Beautiful Church”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

Coming from south Florida where most churches are just meeting halls this is a breath of fresh air. A real church, and literally open to the outside is really cool. All the side doors were wide open with the outside air flowing through. Very nice. The grounds are interesting to walk and view the historical parts as well. A stones throw from the Key West Cemetary, so might as well go there next if you're in this part of town.
