Ave Maria Oratory by danette

Ave Maria Oratory

This Catholic Church sits at the center of the town of Ave Maria. The town was founded by the owner of Domino's Pizza, Tom Monaghan. Ave Maria University is also at the center of town. We visited it for the first time yesterday. It's located about 30 minutes east of Naples, near the Everglades. They are now advertising homes to people who live on the east coast since the prices are more affordable. It's nearly a 2 hour drive there from the east coast.
How cool is that! Such and adorable little church!

I've visited this town of Ava Maria and have been inside the church quite an interesting little town. We have family living in Bonita Beach 6 months of the year, so we visit Florida in the winter.

@skipt07 I had to look that up! You are probably right. To me, it looked like a blimp hangar from a distance.

@radiogirl Bonita Springs is lovely. Not too far a drive from there. I think it will be a busy town eventually.
