  • Worth to book a few hours and go to the church because it is spectacular, the architecture is very beautiful, with beautiful stained glass Windows and images. Stay in a place with garden and fountains.

  • We went to mass at 24 and we loved the atmosphere. The mass was bilingual, and we loved it. As a Catholic, you have to go

  • This church is next to the Premium Outlet of Vineland, in Orlando. Images of angels and a right foot out loud make up the beautiful painting. You get some brochures on entry and the development of the mass is a little different from that of Brazil.

  • This is one of the best Catholic Churches you can visit. Always such a blessing to go. They have Mass and confession every single day!!! I can never get over how great it is.
  • 0 room on Christmas Eve, standing room only 40 min prior to mass. There is plenty of space for chairs but nothing. Speakers are awful and can barely hear anything. I was expecting something more impressive. Just go to your local church and save the stress.
  • Humble and dedicated priests who confess every day for long periods of time. Very convenient. There are no excuses to not confess. Be prepared, we are living difficult times.
  • The shrine was very beautiful. I enjoyed the overall experience. I recommend this shrine if you are looking for a religious time with God
  • Always a pleasant place to celebrate mass while on vacation. The shrine is beautiful and the grounds stunning.

Where to stay in Orlando

Orlando is famous for its high concentration of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. The city caters to every tourist's needs, with accommodations ranging from inexpensive hostels and motels to five-star resorts and lavish private villas. Orlando is a busy city all year long, so plan ahead and book your stay well in advance. To avoid the crowds of the big theme parks, consider renting a vacation house or condo just outside the city, or explore one of the area's campgrounds or RV resorts.
