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!

Hadn't been in since I was a kid. Quick visit to say a prayer for some departed loved ones. Mid week and Mid afternoon.

Do not see too many churches in this area. Apparently many do not believe in organized religion unless you count Scientology. Quaint and offers a quiet time for reflection.

We enjoyed our Sunday Mass at the chapel. There are three AM Sunday services; the 10:00 AM was fully attended and the Eucharist celebrated by Monsignor Lawrence J. Baird; we were pleasantly surprised to learn that he actually came from Hamilton, ON. A relative small...More

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
