  • This is beautiful church that merits your effort to get to see it on the inside as well as the outside. I have wanted to go inside for years, but it never fit into our plans, or it was not open...

  • What a beautiful parish - the people, the ambiance, the preaching and to have so much beauty in spite of the damage this building has endured from storm waters as a result of hurricanes over the years. I attended daily mass - 12:10 PM M-F in the summer and was impressed by the high attendance (80-95 folks), the diversity, the reverence and the steadfast joy of the congregation! I highly recommend. All are welcome in the catholic Church.
  • This church is my church home. Love the people and service! They also do amazing with their youth Faith Formation classes! Definitely recommend, come visit us!
