‘Tis a Grand Day to visit Hilton Head and to visit St. Francis by the Sea. St. Francis by the Sea is a beautiful church, and welcomes folks of all faiths. We enjoy the celebration of Mass of this fine December day.

Priests are the best, good sermons with message you can take home. Just to hear the organist is worth the trip. Warm, welcoming, spiritual, peaceful. Can really encounter the Lord here. Wish we were here year round. Daily Masses are very special, too.

Very beautiful small church. We usually attend mass there when we visit Hilton Head Island. Always very impressed with the friendliness of the people and priest.

What a wonderful experience here at this church. The parishioners were friendly and welcoming, the church was beautiful, the priest was a hoot since he was from the North East as we are so his sermon made us feel at home.

No matter where I travel I find a Catholic Church to attend Mass. Although St. Francis is a big space, it still feels comfortable, with it’s semi-circle design. If in this area again, I will definitely attend Mass here.

A typical Hilton Head thrift shop. Not high end on its face, but you can find some great deals and beautiful gems.

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.
