The Mass was so joyous and spirited, from the music and singing to the homily. The church itself is very very pretty, but it is the people inside that made... More

A cool oasis in a hot busy city. Unusual décor and detailing. Absolutely in the centre of town, easy to find but if you have a car then park in the multi-storey at the north of the market

Sunday morning Mass is at 8:30 A.M. It is somewhat more formal than many Catholic services in the USA, with, for example, the servers all wearing cassocks and surplices and incense used to honor the altar, the Gospel book, the priest and the congregation, as at High Masses I used to attend years ago. People dress up for Mass, so... More

Looks nothing much from the outside but the interior blows you away. Beautiful painted wooden ceiling and stunning stained glass windows.

We when to the town to buy some stuff to take home, fridge magnet etc. Food is cheap and nice. Then we found the church that was beautiful inside. My daughter got a lovely picture with 2 of the nuns out side. Great experience worth a visit.

Beautiful singing at Sunday mass in this historic church. Friendly people. We particularly enjoyed seeing the beautiful children in their Sunday best. Note: locals do dress up for Mass.

The island churches are beautiful and not over the top. Plus, they are not crowded at all. If you are tired of industrial looking mega churches, you will appreciate this.

I'm so glad we stopped and visited this church. How traditionally beautiful. The feeling in and around the Church was comforting.

We visited this church twice during our stay in Soufriere. It is very beautiful for a small city and the doors always seemed to be open and something going on. The church is next to the street where the buses for Castries and Vieux Fort park so it is easy to visit even if you are not staying in Soufriere.... More
