Beautiful little church. After mass we walked the gardens alongside of it. Were told by locals the area was completely destroyed by Irma. The parishioners did a great job of re-planting. It was a beautiful place to walk and reflect!

Very nice Easter service. We went the Sunday before Easter and Easter service last year and got to sit in the church. Beatiful church. This year we were in the community hall of the church, still a nice service. The gardens are small but nice.

How many things in life are really free? Beautiful prayer garden around and behind the church. Best viewed at night when it’s lit up.

This place is a very well layed out garden with all sort of private spaces to just wonder and enjoy a quiet few moments!

Visited for mass on Christmas Eve for the family mass at 5pm. The mass opened with a brief nativity story with kids in costumes. It was less than 10 minutes, but adorable. Then it was a lovely mass and as visitors we felt very welcomed.

This is a wonderful parish that has been like a family to me for over 25 years. I watched the prayer garden evolve into a treasured place of meditation and peace. Then Hurricane Irma 'visited' the Keys. She got the vegetation from our garden (and...More
