The Orlando Project
“We believe that creating a Christ-centered sanctum for your Gospel Garden will transform our city and our state.”
-Most Reverend John Noonan, Bishop of Orlando
About the Project
Mary, Queen of the Universe Basilica will proudly display the Gospel Garden which will be unparalleled in all of North America.
There will be twelve inspirational sculptures that makes up the “Gospel Garden” at The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe in Orlando, FL.
These magnificent bronze sculptures of the Gospel Garden will help the millions of pilgrims to the Basilica better understand the extent and purpose of Christ’s ministry for the benefit of all souls, with the intention of leading souls back to and closer to God.
The Basilica lies within one mile of Disney, and within five miles of Sea World, Universal Orlando, and the Orange County Convention Center. More than 75 million domestic and international visitors come to Orlando each year.
The Gospel Garden, when completed, will allow the visitor to make a spiritual pilgrimage through prayer, contemplation and “living” the message and purpose of Christ through the detail and magnificence of the bronze sculptures.
Each sculpture exquisitely provides a visual depiction of the teachings of Christ bringing context to the words and messages of Jesus.
About the Location
Mary, Queen of the Universe Basilica
The Basilica is not a parish church, but a designated place of Pilgrimage dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God.
In order for a church to become a basilica, it must be recommended to the Vatican, which then considers aspects of the church such as liturgy, sacraments, size, renown, beauty, mission and others in order to judge if the church is worthy of becoming a basilica.
The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe was built by tourists, for tourists, with a mission to serve the countless travelers the Sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation.
Mary, Queen of the Universe offers a place to gather Christian pilgrims, a place to carry on the mission of evangelization of the peoples and lead the faithful to an increased devotion to the worship of the Holy Eucharist.
The Gospel Garden will enhance the beauty of the existing grounds and will serve as a spiritual place of prayer and reflection for all who visit the Basilica.
