I live next door, yes I'm catholic and enjoy 5:00 Saturday Mass.. Christmas is especially special. I go to early mass, but leave my windows open to listen (from bed) the mid-night mass. Always a wonderful experience.. Such a beautiful chapel.. A wonderful main-stay here...More

Fast & furious. That's the way to describe this small but beautiful church. Very friendly & peaceful way to begin a Sunday morning. Mass was fast, just the way I like it

Beautiful quaint chapel! We went to Sunday mass @ 9am (mass times are 8, 9, 10)....then enjoyed breakfast 2 doors down! We walked from our condo on Bayside (10 min. Walk).......parking is a challenge on Marine Ave. Best peaceful- enjoyable morning!

An oasis of quiet beauty and charm. Beautifully redone about 10 years ago, with fantastic mosaics. A very popular destination for mass, greatly enhanced by the short morning masses ... and the compelling sermons of the incomparable Monsignor Baird. It's not always open, unfortunately, but...More
