St. Francis of Assisi Parish is comprised of four churches:
St. Francis of Assisi Church - 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach, NJ
St. Thomas Aquinas Church - 2nd St. & Atlantic Ave., Beach Haven, NJ
St. Thomas of Villanova Church - 13th St. & Long Beach Blvd., Surf City, NJ
St. Clare Church - 56th St. & Long Beach Blvd., Loveladies, NJ
In the interest of community-building, but also for energy conservation, only St. Francis of Assisi Church, in Brant Beach, is open year round. The other churches are open according to the seasonal population on Long Beach Island.
When making a decision to close the parish and center due to inclement weather or other emergencies, the primary factor is your SAFETY, given the age of most of our parishioners.

When in doubt remember, PRUDENCE IS A GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT...AND PRUDENCE TRUMPS PIETY.
