This cathedral is in quite poor repair. Unfortunately it is under restoration after hurricane damage but still worth a visit. Quite close to the Catholic Cathedral.

Major building works being undertaken at present to restore the building to its former glory. However still well worth popping in for a look

Large 200-year old Georgian-style cathedral built of lava stone. It is the faith's mother church of the Windward Islands. Grounds with cemetery are being "reasonably" cared for, but the building has many structural and maintenance issues. We were beckoned inside to see the beautiful arched interior now beginning its much-needed restoration, but there was no opportunity for any kind of tour. Although we gave a small donation, we would have given much more had we been able to get a real interpretation about the church's history and architecture. The church would be wise to provide this service when cruise ships are in port in order to boost donations from the many tourists exploring Kingstown.

Had to go due to a funeral but went very early.
Looked around this very old lovely building, wow the jewel in the crown for the pope. The odd twist and turns showing the building and the master builders who built it is awesome
A very heavenly place to contemplate long may it remain

This cathedral caught my eye when passing by, due to the unusual bell tower. It is different from other churches in neighbouring islands and it is a good example of colonial architecture

We visited the cathedral along with the Catholic Cathedral and Methodist Church during our visit to KIngstown,. They are all next to each other. We were greeted warmly by members busily preparing for the next days services. Its full of fascinating insights in to life on the island years ago, in the detailed memorial plaques on the walls. They worship at 05.30 and 07.00! I admire them!!

By European standards this church is not very old (about 200 years) but nonetheless it is steeped in history.
This basically white building is in fact built from black lava stone, which is not obvious from the outside but once inside it is evident from the interior walls and the floor.
The inside of the church is quite appealing, the main attractions being the chandelier made from gilded wood and the stained glass window with the “red angel”. Queen Victoria commissioned this stained glass window for her grandson and was so shocked when she saw the angel in red instead of white that she ordered it to be hidden away. It remained in storage in St.Paul's Cathedral (London) for many years until it was re-discovered and brought back to St.Vincent in 1920.
However, for me the most memorable and most touching item is the plaque on the north wall, this tablet carries the valediction of his wife by a widowed man, it is a very emotional piece of work and well worth the reading.

When you visit Kingstown make a point of finding this picturesque church, enjoy its peace and tranquillity as a break from the heat, dust, and the hustle and bustle of the town.

A pleasant welcome from the verger who was happy to answer questions.

Worth a visit to see the stained glass window and the chandelier. A stroll round the graveyard gives a sense of the place and its people.

Directly opposite St Mary's cathedral and just off the main road running down from the cruise terminal (about 15 minutes walk away), this rather notable looking building is just off the main road running down from the cruise terminal. Looking more somewhat modern than its rustic neighbour, it's a large atmospheric site with lovely stain glass windows and lots of tranquillity and charm.

Active church, nice garden just behind and some interesting pieces of information on local culture, history and important people. Like everywhere in the city, some refurbish works would make wonder.
