We visited this church along with the Derek Walcott Park, which is right across the street. It is only a short walk up from the Central Market area next to the harbor. The church is quite beautiful and has a unique looking ceiling and some very colorful wall paintings. It is worth a visit if you have time.

Lovely church, very busy on that day with beautifully turned out locals and lots of children. The music was brilliant, the priest enthusiastic, the service started late and we had to leave before the end.

We attended Mass here during our holiday at the nearby Rendezvous hotel. It is a large space but built of sheet metal with painted "trompe l'oieul" effects on the steel pillars to make them look like stone. there is no air conditioning and the only attempt at cooling is via the well intended but inadequate fans hung from the ceiling...

We were able to attend a mass at this church and it was beautiful. The open air design of the church and the people inside it made it a truly unique experience.

try to visit on Sunday and listen to Mass - even if you don't stay for the full service. you will find a full house and lots of beautifully dressed children and the singing is wonderful.

Can be easily walked to from a cruise ship. Lovely church with great murals on the inside that depict a broad range of topics. The openness of it and the architecture tells you that you're in the Caribbean.

A Catholic church with interesting fresco's around the walls and a wooden beamed ceiling. Worth visiting whilst shopping in Castries.

Beautiful historic church in the center of town. Lots of charm. Common choice for weddings. If you're attending a mass, be sure to have your shoulders covered or bring a shawl with you. It can get very hot though, although they have some fans, but you may want to bring a paper fan or parasol with you.

the ceiling and side walls have unbelievable original, local, very high quality art work that deserves restoring and preservation, sadly there is deterioration and some damage to a few wall murals, while the overall structure seems very sound and reliable {as in" she has good bones, but the skin is deteriorating").

Nice, open and interesting church, worth a visit. Nice square bearby and other sites on walking distance. Parking can be difficult asit is right at the centre of the busy town and some Streets can feel a little bit unsafe, so take care.
