St. Anthony’s by the Sea

This lovely little chapel of St. Anthony by the Sea (near Niles Beach) belongs to Holy Family Parish. It is open for Sunday services at 9:30AM only in the summer, and for weddings until the fall.  I think the stained glass windows are absolutely beautiful, real works of art.

  1. This is a beautiful chapel. Thanks for the step back in time. As a child, while spending summers in Gloucester, I attended with my Grandmother. I’ve always wondered~what’s the history? I do hope the chapel was built with Gloucester stone…do you know?


    1. I’m afraid I don’t know the details of the history of the building. It was built as a private chapel for the service staff of a nearby estate, from what I understand, but that’s all I really know.


  2. I shot a few weddings at Saint Anthony’s, including that of George and Ellen Sibley. It’s a very photogenic church.


  3. Thank you for posting pictures of the inside. What beautiful colors and textures! I spent time in the garden last October but had not seen the inside. It is another Gloucester gem.


  4. Thank you so much; I have always wondered what the inside looked like.
    I am always whizzing by in a car & have always wanted to stop and take a gander.
