Ave Maria's location in southern Florida shares the same subtropical wetland ecosystem as the Florida Everglades. It is home to a biodiversity of birds such as wood storks, anhinga, heron and hawks. The town was planned with the large Ave Maria church in the center. The building serves as the home of the Ave Maria Catholic Church, part of the Diocese of Venice, which serves as the parish for local residents and students. One of the oratory's most distinctive characteristics is its steel structure, much of which is exposed internally and externally. The landmark church received an award from the American Institute of Steel Construction in 2008.
Big towns bustle, small towns breathe.
Big towns offer conveniences, small towns offer connection.
Big towns may have all you're looking for, but small towns have the things you can't see:
Neighborly bonds and quality time.
Ave Maria is the best of both.
