A simple church staffed by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. The people are all very friendly and the priest was outstanding! I prefer this to the other local parish.

A very friendly community church. A nice place to pray and reflect while on vacation. Friendly parishioners and equally friendly clergy.
