  • The Mary Grotto to the right of the Basilica is breathtaking & spiritual at night, illuminated by subtle lighting and devotional candles.  more »
  • Went to 6 PM Mass. 50 minutes and sermon was superb. Went for a wedding that was canceled by hurricane (our reservations could not be canceled) and the sermon was on marriage.  more »

  • Wonderful local school.
  • I researched all the options available for our daughter last year and found Mary Immaculate to be the best. The school is clean, safe and well cared for. The staff is beyond friendly. There is a real sense of family at this school. No "clics", just good people and great kids.My family is Jewish and we had concerns about the religious side of the teachings.But they structure their teachings towards the child becoming a "good person". I've really appreciated that this past year. I saw a wonderful change in my daughter from the very first week.We've had a great experience at MISS and are looking forward to the coming years.
