Information & Mass Schedule
We are Assisi by the Shore!
We welcome you and invite you to share the joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with us. We are an active and diverse community that gathers to celebrate, in word and sacrament, the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
As Christians in the Roman Catholic Communion, we are inspired by the example of our brother in the Lord, Saint Francis of Assisi, who exemplified love of the poor, reverence for God’s creation, respect for the dignity of all human life and the importance of dialogue that seeks reconciliation and peace for all people. We strive to love and serve the poor, to revere God’s creation, to protect the dignity of all human life, and to seek reconciliation and peace through dialogue here in Point Pleasant Beach.

On March 7, 1881, Father Peter Jachetti fell asleep on his train journey from Manchester to Lakehurst, missed his connection and arrived in Manasquan. While waiting for the next train, he looked around and thought about establishing a 'place by the ocean' where the Franciscans could minister to the people. Mr. Patrick McIlhenny of Point Pleasant urged Fr. Jachetti to visit the newly organized settlement of Point Pleasant City, which he did on March 29, 1881. Within days permission was granted to buy 6 lots for a friary and a church on Richmond Avenue. The church built at a cost of $5,000 was dedicated on June 29, 1882. Undaunted by the tragedy of losing the original church to fire on January 14, 1901, the pastor and congregation started over. It was then that the property on which St. Peter's Church now stands was purchased and the new church was dedicate on July 27, 1902.
