‘Here comes everybody’: Check out Long Island’s Mass on the beach

‘Here comes everybody’: Check out Long Island’s Mass on the beach August 8, 2019

Heading to the beach this summer? Don’t forget God. A priest on Long Island is doing that in a very direct way:

Every Sunday, in July and August, several hundred people gather on the beach for Mass. The Mass has brought many in the community back to the Catholic Faith.

The Beach Mass, formally known as “God at the Beach,” is a powerful public witness of our faith in Long Beach. The Mass is a missionary celebration of the Eucharist; that is meant to show the unity of the Catholic Faith, invite all into that unity, and then to continue the spiritual enthusiasm in the Church and parish life once the summer is over.

Father Brian Barr, pastor of St. Mary of the Isle, Long Beach and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Point Lookout, typically celebrates and preaches at the Mass. His homilies and the Beach Mass schedule can be found at stmaryoftheisle.com
