Who We Are

St. Michael’s by-the-Sea is a theologically orthodox Episcopal Church located in the coastal Village of Carlsbad, California. As far as churches go, it’s kind of a beachy version of the ancient Christian Faith.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the center of this spiritual community. Morning and Evening Prayer and the Holy Eucharist are offered daily to the glory of the Most Holy Trinity.

Whether you’re in town for a week at the beach or a local pilgrim on a spiritual journey, St. Michael’s by-the-Sea welcomes you!
