I'm being funny of course. This place is amazingly peaceful and spiritual considering it's right off i4 and next to shopping outlet store. This is cooler than the next closest basilica in Daytona. It's neat to have mass with people from all over the world....More

The church is magnificent. The architecture, the stained glass and the sculptures within the church are awesome. You must see the chapel with the blue window when the sun is hitting it. The gift shop is the best Catholic goods store we have ever seen.
