“Easter service, magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Not actually in 2104 but a few years ago. Easter family delight, plus the Caribbean surf seen and heard through the open windows either side of the altar. Joyous, unforgettable.

“Oldest Church on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

So much history, all US Presidents, Prime minsters brass placs indicate were President Ragan sat. and VIPs all attend Sunday Mass. Not to be missed beautiful inside, and beautiful gardens outside.

“must visit at Holetown Festival”

The annual festival was in full swing, local police band music and vendors with local crafts. The Church was beautifully decorated with exotic flower arrangements. A wonderful experience.
