We were a couple of times in this church which makes you feel right away like home, once you step inside here, very family-like atmosphere, no matter where you are coming from, parishioners treat you just like close family. The church is impressive and well kept. You will like this church as much as we did.

We had eight services to choose from and chose to attend the 12 noon one. We were very pleased with the welcome and the atmosphere. There was an English translation for the readings. We also found out there is an English mass once every Sunday.

Very noisy, and it was very hot.But it's nice, very simple, and has a beach "style" so it makes it special and different

This church is very beautiful but simple. They have an English Mass every Sunday at 9 and Spanish Masses throughout the day and evening. Parking is ample but be sure not to be too early because of turnover. So, for the 9AM Mass, get there about 8:55 and the people from the 8 will be leaving.

Very busy church in hub of community. Open doors to visitors. Probably should be bigger church To do more and have more room for service And activities and outreach.
