This is a very colorful and actively used church. While we were there, a procession of local, well mannered school children entered the church. I was also interested to see a memorial to the Martyrs of Uganda. The condition of the Cathedral suggests modest wealth...More

Vast church with a Victorian iron structure, akin to a market hall and a very interesting interior, including attractive stained glass windows.

Mass was wonderful and the music and choir outstanding. Beautiful church in the heart of town and easy to get to by taxi from the cruise ship. People very friendly and welcoming. Would go there again.

Worth popping in. The interior is beautifully painted and the stained glass windows are painted in a Caribbean style. It is well used with many people at prayer.

This church was the highlight of our walk around town. There was so much to see and contemplate inside, from the beautiful artwork, ceiling, side altars, etc. Many of the artwork depicted black saints or had a local flavor. We spent a lot of time...More
