This pretty church is worth a visit for pictures both inside and out. There are lots of Buganvillia of many colours which look wonderful against the white plaster walls of the church. I am not a church goer, so I went for the aesthetic beauty, rather than for a service.

I was able to walk to mass at this Catholic Church. One reading was in English and we were given an English translation of all readings and the Gospel. The people were genuinely kind and friendly.

Stopped here to pray for a bit as we would be traveling on Sunday. Very peaceful and respected grounds! Beautiful respite from the normal tourist stuff.

We were able to attend Mass and fulfill our Sunday obligation hoping that it was an all- English mass as stated in the schedule. This should be considered being that a lot of the people going to this mass are tourists
