Overview

Be warned: St. Francis by the Sea is the smallest Catholic Church in the Guinness Book of World Records. Don't mistakenly walk into St. Mary's Episcopal Church next door. The narrow building of St. Francis contains only 1008 square feet. It was built in 1933, has plenty of old-world charm with a wooden bell tower, 15 stained glass transoms, 7 statues, antique chandeliers, plenty of paintings, Spanish tiles, and dark wood beams with painted symbols. Sunday service starts at 9a. Private services are available by appointment. – Hoiyin Ip
