Even if you're not catholic, a visit to this church is more than worthwhile.What I like most were the messes on Sunday with a live Mariachi band. During the week it's a sanctuary for those who are searching for help, protection, forgiveness, enlightment and sometimes a hide out from the busy people and streets in the neighbourhood.

Is a charming little chapel located on the 5th. Av. Some friends of ours had their 50th wedding anniversary mass held there and the experience is great. The views behind the altar of the ocean and well maintained landscape adds up to the experience.

We had our wedding at the chapel on 5th avenue on August 14, 2014 and it was amazing! We made all of the arrangements with Carmita and everything went absolutely perfectly. It was a pleasure working with her in arranging everything. Carmita gave us refererrals for flowers, mariachis, and even set up our transportation for us from the chapel to... More

The church is quite quaint with enough seating for about 60 people or more and is a nice place to stop for some quiet time. You can pray if you like and the priest is there if you need to talk to him. No donation required but I am sure they would accept one.

The priest gave a beautiful mass, and my guests were extremely happy with everything. If you are planning on getting married at the Capilla and have any questions let me know, I might be able to answer. I know... More
