Hi Ann.

Catholic Weddings are held at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Cathedral located on Lower Main Street in Charlotte Amalie. All Pre-Cana requirements must be in the hands of the Catholic Diocese at least six months in advance of your wedding date.

The building was consecrated as a parish church in 1848 and serves as the seat of the territory's Roman Catholic diocese. The ceiling and walls are covered with murals painted in 1899 by two Belgian artists, Father Leo Servais and Brother Ildephonsus. The San Juan-marble altar and side walls were added in the 1960s.

I don't have any but perhaps if you check on Google you'll find something. Alternatively you could call them and ask them where you might obtain photographs.

Hello Ann,

There are four Catholic Churches on St. Thomas.

The Holy Family Church (340)775-1650
Our Lady of Perpetual Help (340)774-0885
Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral (340)774-0201
St. Anne's (340)714-1101

Holy Family, OLPH and St. Annes are small churches, simple design and decorations. Sts. Peter and Paul is a Cathedral, its larger and has a more ornate interior.
