  • What an interesting church. Do be shy if you are not a religious person, go for the architecture. The church was built in an open modern style which makes you wonder what happen when it rains.

  • We went to the English Mass on Sunday at 9:00 A.M. to our surprise there were fewer than 100 people present. Mass took about 45 minutes and everyone was masked. The homilist was fine but he did...

  • First time going to mass outside of the United States. A great experience in the open air sanctuary! The presiding priest was so welcoming and inspiring! Put it on your list of "to do's" if you're visiting Cancun.
  • One of the few Roman Catholic temples where the main figure is Jesus ascending (please, more of this. The world doesn't need more bleeding Jesus). The atmosphere of the temple is awesome, it almost feels like a five-star resort lobby and I personally felt welcome. My only concern is about the guilt-trip speech typical of Roman Catholics trying to make me feel a sinner because, basically, I breathe and I have earthly delights and needs. The priest even made a comparison saying that baptism made Christianity an "open" religion instead of Jews who were "designated by birth". I think that those comments are out of place in modern times and make it look more like propaganda. Anyway, it's a great temple to visit. Please show respect wether you sympathize with Catholics or not and try to donate to the maintenance of the place (hurricanes make a mess every time and pandemic made things worse).
