Default Churchs in Fort Lauderdale

Folks,

We are sailing on the Caribbean Princess on 7/1, leaving out of Fort Lauderdale. We are staying at the Renaissance on 17th Street. It's near the Embassy Suites

Does anyone know of any Catholic churches within walking distance?

Thanks in advance,

Sid1962

We just stayed at both hotels and did a little walking around the area but honestly don't remember any churches near by. Call the hotels direct and speak to the concierge desk, they should be more than happy to help you.

Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Hotel 954) 626-1700
Embassy Suites Ft. Lauderdale 954-527-2700

Hi Sid,
Not within walking distance, but I do believe this one is just a short cab ride away, on AIA, diagonally up from Pier 66, which is right near your hotel, just over the causeway.

St Pius X Catholic Church
2511 N, Ocean Blvd..A1A
4 blocks south of Oaakland Blvd.
954 564 1763/rectory number

Acording to my 03 Fll. phonebook it says..Sunday Masses 8:00 9:30 11:00
12:30
Vigil Mass Saturday 4:00 & 5:30

I hope this helps, and have a great cruise

Thanks in advance,
The hotel desk will have a list of churches of various denominations, synagogues, mosques, etc., in the vicinity with the times of their services. They also will be glad to provide directions. You may well have to take a taxi to get there, unless your hotel has a courtesy shuttle or you are renting a vehicle for your stay.

FWIW, attractions are pretty spread out in most of Florida so a rental car probably is a good idea if you want to do anything there other than hang out at your hotel during your stay.

Norm.
