‘Ave Maria’, Florida

Ave Maria's City CenterThere’s a new township in Florida called Ave Maria that, hence the name, is widely Catholic. This new development is being built in conjunction with Ave Maria University- and according to the Ave Maria Website it is the first modern town to do so. The layout of the 5000 acres includes an oratory (a cathedral that isn’t technically a cathedral) at the town’s center with both commercial and residential buildings in the immediate circle around it. Residents, although non-catholics are welcome (but will probably get beat up and have their lunch money stolen), are predominantly Catholic and can live in a single family home, condominiums, or apartments.
