The church is in the center of the town next to old town. Area around the church is not accommodating for tourists, just the busy center of the town with no coffee shops or restaurants. We saw craft market few blocks away. Inside of the church mahogany trim, balconies and benches are beautiful. Too bad we did not come during mass, steel drum music performed there might be very interesting. Tourist are brought to the church and taken back after visit, what a lost opportunity. Looks like archdiocese decided to built new building very close to the church, in the future probably hiding part of the building.

We visited on a Saturday and there were quite a few people in and around the Church. Lots of history and remarkable elements including the old pipe organ, very old altar and pews, ornate carvings, stained glass, and the outside cemetery. Make a contribution and say a prayer when you're there.

The stained glass windows and eagle pulpit are beautiful Unfortunately, many of the old graves have been destroyed or have deteriorated. If you go to church, it is interesting to attend the service. High Anglican with a mix of Jamaican music, It starts very early I think 7:30 and it is a long service. One highlight is the "Pans of Praise" a steel pan band that plays in the loft on two Sundays per month.

Well worth the time to tour or attend church services here! The church was built almost 250 years ago and is very unique. Hand carved pews, wonderful stained glass & a unique organ.
