  • Beautiful church! Very welcoming community. The music was great and Father’s sermon was very inspiring!!  more »
  • Not large but nice mass. Older church that looks as if there have been some nice renovations. Not very crowded.  more »

  • It was our first time in this church. We visited due to our former Pastor is now the new Pastor of this Church, Reverend Patrick Mulcahy. Don't take my word for it but if you want a good uplifting homily, you should go to his mass. We follow him wherever he goes and try to attend his mass as often as we can. We live in the South but it is always worth the drive to listen to his homily. He was our Pastor at Corpus Christi for 10 years then was moved to the Cathedral now here at this Parish. The people are very welcoming as well. They are all helpful and friendly. I think you will like this church very intimate and beautiful inside and out. It's not very big but it doesn't get very full for now. They also have beautiful music. I think this church also has a school nearby. Check out their school. This reminded me of our old Parish St Michael's Church in Paradise Valley. The difference is it is located near the beach , La Jolla. It has a beautiful location but very busy so give yourself time so you won't be late for the service. God bless.
  • Beautiful church and service. It's a place I've been inside several times just to pray, but I just went for mass for the first time and it was really nice. It's a smaller church with a lovely choir.
