An acquaintance at our resort asked the priest at this church to renew their wedding vows at mass. They actually made the couple a cake and invited them to stay for a small celebration. I didn't know people like that existed anymore!

We loved going to the 10am Sunday Mass here. The priest is very welcoming...walks around shaking hands, asking where everyone is from...most of the people at Mass were tourists. Worth an hour of time away from the beach to attend. Recommend highly.

I attended 10am mass on Palm Sunday - 3.25.2018. This was 1 of the most moving masses I've ever attended. The Franciscan priest - father Jim led a beautiful service. I attended mass by myself but the feeling of community brought tears to my eyes....More

This is a really friendly church, full with about half local parishioners and half visitors when we visited. Lovely service with some great resident singing! Also seems to be very involved in the community, actively supporting improved access the schooling and soup kitchens.
