  • Very pleasant place, I love everything about it. The structure of the building and the people in the area are very nice.
  • Beam me up Scotty! Is it just me, or does the facade of this super modern Roman Catholic Church look strikingly similar to the logo emblem of Star Trek? Hmmm... ? Maybe. In any case, its a beautiful church. The design is so modern and unique. The steel beams rise and open above the main sanctuary in cross patterns that allow the most beautiful displays of light and shadows to come in. It very peaceful albeit futuristic inside. I've detoured off Alligator Alley twice now just to drive through Ave Maria town and check out this church. Kudos to the designers. Very nice.
  • Beautiful architecture and church can be seen from miles away due to it's soaring height above the landscape.
  • The exterior design, does look out of place, the concept evidently was to replicate an old European town where the church was actually the center of the town. And there are hundreds of brand new home stretching out over the horizon, so people are flocking here and creating a town surrounding the church. There was no twon at all when the church was built. The church has a much more modern metal design look from the outside, but the front is traditional with lovely stone , statues inset and a fabulous and huge white marble sculpture of the Annunciation . When you enter the church, that is the beauty, the interior gives a feeling of an older style church , not like the modern warehouse churches, this is a sacred spot with a sacred feel and gorgeous soaring arches - a special place of worship and the interior design reflects that. An interesting use of modern materials replicating the beauty of a medieval cathedral.
  • The joy of celebration of the Mass with the like minded; without fear of the supposed "enlightened".
