    Concise Review

    Beautiful Cathedral to celebrate Mass

    -----

    Longer Review

    We visited St. Thomas, USVI, for the first time in 2021, and had a great time.

    One of the highlights was celebrating Mass at the Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul.

    The cathedral is mostly repaired from the hurricanes in 2017… it sounds like possibly only the air conditioner still needs to be replaced.

    The building’s exterior is a beautiful shade of golden yellow. The stained glass windows celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus the lives of saints and encourage us to become our saints ourselves.

    Paintings on the ceiling celebrate Jesus as a child, the Trinity - God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit, and Jesus’ Passion… and above the altar Jesus’ Crucifixion.

    The theme of this weekend’s homily: This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.

    It is a small world…
    We’re from St. Louis, MO, and Belleville, IL is a few minutes away, just across the Mississippi River, 30 minutes from our house… after Mass, as we said “Hello,” Rev. Msgr. Jerôme Feudjio shared that he served in the Belleville Diocese for a while… he knows where we live!

    The Feast Day of St. Peter and Paul happened to be that week, so the parish was celebrating. After Mass they shared cake and drinks with us… tasty… and more importantly, so welcoming to us visitors.

    Thank you, parish of the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, for letting us celebrate Mass and your feast weekend with you!

    This building is worth a visit when in St. Thomas. The pulpit is very unusual. The church welcomes tourists and the architecture is interesting.

    Visitors are welcome for Sunday service. The church was open through the week as well. Around 80 were in attendance the Sunday we visited. It was a "light" 60 minute service in a beautiful light-filled, breezy sanctuary. Worth a visit for everyone needing a bit of reflection amidst the shopping, eating and sight-seeing of Charlotte Amalie.

    A wonderful walk through history on St. Thomas. We enjoyed every minute of our visit at the synagogue. “Agi” was very kind and explained every detail beautifully. It was really powerful sitting in that space. We are so glad we had the chance to stop here on our trip and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    A bit off the beaten path in town. Religious education (school) through grade 12 and a pretty church.
