Old St. Michael's Chapel

Welcome

St. Michael’s By-the-Sea Episcopal Church is the oldest, and was for many years the only church in Carlsbad. Our historic chapel, Old St. Michael’s, was built in 1894 and is one of the four oldest buildings in the village. Both the old and the new church are in use for services.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the center of this spiritual community. Morning and Evening Prayer and the Holy Eucharist are offered daily in the chapel. Whether you’re in town for a week at the beach or a local pilgrim on a spiritual journey, you are welcome here!
