Long Branch, Monmouth County
south on Ocean Avenue you will come across this exceptionally fine
late Catholic Gothic church, built in 1886. Whereas so many of the
Catholic churches in the state are located on city lots, making difficult
to taken in the entire church, this sits alone and the perspective
from all directions is a delight.
