The only Catholic Church in Key West has been designated a Minor Basilica by the Pope. The church and grounds are absolutely beautiful!

Everything about the mass was perfect. The pastor and his heartfelt, positive homily following the challenges from the hurricane; the musicians and organist. A beautiful start to Christmas Day in Key West!

The church was all decorated for Christmas...the most beautiful church we visited on the island. It is interesting to also walk the memorial garden and visit the private cemetery. Very wlecoming for viewing and for prayers. Peace abounds.

If you get the chance visit this church and grotto. It is very well maintained and the hand built grotto is magnificent. A prayer and lightning a candle to the Blessed Mother here will keep you protected from any storm.

Lovely church to have a look around. The windows either side were open so you had a gentle breeze to cool you down.

Some friends of ours came down from Chicago to get married there and have the reception in town. It was beautiful . The inside is just full of grace and God. The service was wonderful.

The Mary Grotto to the right of the Basilica is breathtaking & spiritual at night, illuminated by subtle lighting and devotional candles.

Regarding attire, Key West is VERY casual, so I would think that this applies to church also. When we visited during the day, we were in shorts; not sure that I would (as an older woman) wear shorts to Mass, but feel sure... More
