Very modern and expansive building. Come here every year for Sunday Mass while vacationing in Hilton Head. Plenty of parking spaces made available to the public and a welcoming atmosphere is felt inside the church. Air conditioning system runs great in the building.

A lovely church with a nice setting in the trees. It was a typical mass. The priest was English speaking. He seemed a bit bored to be saying the Mass. This church has an adjoining catholic school.

I like this church. Very upbeat service and good sermons. You feel like you are part of the family when you are there- very friendly and inviting people.

Attended St. Francis by the Sea last Sunday. The church is beautiful, comfortable, an gifted soloist. The priest gave a nice sermon and for Mother's Day, the KofC gave us each a carnation to take home!
