Went to Mass Sunday morning. The priest and all the parishioners were so welcoming. The place is beautiful and prayerful. The museum and the pilgrimage sections are worth a visit even if you're not going to Mass or even Catholic!

I would suggest any Catholic to attend mass in this beautiful Basilica and walk the grounds and just take in the beauty and the peacefulness. Non-Catholics would be welcome too.

This is basically our go to church whenever we come up to Orlando. Very beautiful church and many tourists come and visit. The choir is probably the best church choir I've ever heard.

When we travel to Orlando, the Basilica has become my parish (away from home) for the extent of our stay! It is a truly beautiful place where visitors to the area should experience.
