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!

Went to the 9 am mass on Sunday. Plenty of parking, beautiful church inside. Father gave a very meaningful sermon about love and avoiding self-centered thoughts. Choir music was very good. Mass was done in under and hour. Very organized giving out Communion quickly.

The church is quaint and very laid back. I was different seeing people in shorts in church but it was Hilton Head in the summer and the people were quite respectful.
