A wonderful place to attend Mass when visiting the island. Open concept with plenty of room and very friendly parishioners. The crucifix is really something.

We were here after Christmas, church very modern - people very nice. Clergy great. Could see that this would be a nice long term parish, we were just passing through.

IT is always nice to feel welcome in a Catholic Church during your travels. St Francis by the Sea is a beutiful Church, relatively new and bright and cheerful deor. Comfortable and the service was energizing to my wife and I . Great musical accompanyment!

Good schedule for attending Mass. Priests are very nice and give some great sermons. Music and singing are also very enjoyable.

We had the opportunity to attend a 12:15 Mass on a recent Wednesday. The beautiful church was tucked away behind a charming tree lined parking lot. I think that it's great to be able to connect to the Almighty in such a lovely setting.

We’ve been going to St Francis ever since moving to HHI in 2001. We live in the south end of the island much closer to Holy Family Catholic Church but we travel to the north end to St Francis. I believe there are more visitors...More
