While moored at Boot Key Harbor, we stopped by to hear the Christmas Cantata. It was wonderful, but what really impressed me was the peaceful, lovely garden. Each area focuses on a saint or religious statue, surrounded by local greenery, which in itself is a great place to wander : to pray, calm your thoughts, or meditate. This time of... More

I am a local now for 6 years and this safe haven is my refuge and I am blessed to have such a beautiful place to visit and enjoy. The town of marathon and it's people have outdone themselves.I thank God for all the effort that has been put in for decades of service to the town and visitors.

Certainly would have enjoyed the mass, if it had not been so cold. The air conditioning was probably turned to 40!! Beautiful church and grounds.

Came upon this Church during a bike ride, so glad I did. The prayer garden is a very peaceful place to sit and reflect.

If it's on your way, it's worth a look. Their grounds are well kept as you meander through their prayer garden/stations of the cross. They seem to care for it lovingly.

You can take your time to enjoy as long as youd like. No one was around and it was a peaceful place to reflect.
