Our second visit to this beautiful charismatic Cathedral with a fascinating history. Located just by Independence Square, the building has atmospheric charm and is a definite stop off if in the area. My wife and I popped in when in the location as part of a short stop off from a cruise tour of the Caribbean and enjoyed the opportunity to return to the site.

I went in because the church is next to the Independence Square. It provides a moment of silence and shade for the weary. The interior is rather plain, although the altar section has an unusual, bright yellow background.

We are on vacation in St Kitts and attended mass at this beautiful church downtown. The congregation was so welcoming to visitors. The music was lovely and full of life and priest gave a great homily. The service lasted well over 90 minutes but was most enjoyable.

This is the main Catholic church in Basseterre located in a central square. You can see the spires from the cruise port. Walk straight ahead and to the right. The church has many beautiful statues, a small prayer room, and a parish school with new buildings. Masses are in English. Per the Catholic Directory website, Mass times are Sunday 8:30 AM, Saturday 7:00 PM, Monday 7:00 PM, Tuesday 6:30 AM, Wednesday 6:30 AM an 12:05 PM, Thursday 6:30 AM, and Friday 7:00 PM. The church also has a Facebook page and responds to messages.

While in St Kitts we attended the 8:30 am Sunday Mass. The church is on the Square in Basseterre. As visitors, we were greeted with open arms. A parishioner gave us the guest book to sign upon entering the church. During the sign of peace, many of the church goers came to our pew to shake our hands and at the end of Mass all of the visitors were asked to stand so that they could be welcomed by the entire congregation. If thinking about attending this church while in St. Kitts there are a few things to remember.....as with most churches in the Caribbean, there is no AC and it can get quite warm inside......the Mass was 90 minutes and there is conflicting info on the internet about the time of the Sunday service, it is 8:30 am not pm.

This is a huge edifice in the capital centre and immediately adjacent to a green area with plenty of seating. The cathedral was open - which of itself was something of a surprise with no services ongoing and seemingly nobody present. It is used as a shelter by some needy individuals.

A very pretty church inside and out - well worth a visit if not a prayer.

As practicing Catholics, we went to Mass on Mother's day 2016. We arrived at 8am for 830am Mass. The nuns were saying the Rosary aloud before Mass, so this was nice to participate in. This is not your 45 minute in and out Mass that you get in the US. It was a total of 2 hours, BUT.... it didn't feel like 2 hours. They have a drum set and some jambe type drums that play with the choir. The choir was OUTSTANDING. The hymns were the same, but with a Caribbean flair. The parish is a real community and this was evident during Mass. They introduce visitors towards the end of Mass and are very welcoming of visitors. The men in the parish serenaded the women for mother's day and all men got up to sing. It was so nice. We are so glad that we went to worship with these great people and will definitely attend Mass again when we return to St. Kitts.

We were downtown for the day and wanted to stop to see the church. It was beautiful and a throwback in time.

It is right next to Independence Square in Basseterre.
