Attraction details

As I entered I was taken with the beauty of this Catholic Church. Yes it was very functional but also beautiful. The cross above the altar was inspiring. After Mass, take time to visit the gardens out back. There is a Rosary path and a Stations of the Cross path. There is beautiful statuary including benches that seem to wrap you in the arms of an angel. For the kids - there are lots of coconut trees. I am sure the gardeners did not mind that we picked up a few to take back and open.

Even if not for Mass - this is a beautiful and peaceful place to stop for a quick prayer.

Father Luis Rivara is the new priest in town. Father Jerry is very missed by all of the parishioners. Father Rivara provides a great homily with a lot of inspiration. Worth a visit when you are in town. If you happen to be here during Christmas A MUST SEE is their beautiful prayer gardens.

We went to Mass here and the priest and people were great. The gift shop and the meditation garden were both worth seeing. Don't miss this lovely place.

San Pablo Catholic Church was less that 5 minutes from our condo. After mass we walked through the gardens what a beautiful and peaceful place to spend time after mass or just to visit on its own. Next trip to the Keys I plan on stopping again and taking more time to take in all the beauty and tranquility this garden has to offer.
