My husband has asked me to inquire about churches on STT. He is Episcopalian (sp?) and I am Catholic. We are trying to decide which church our daughter will be raised in and which she will celebrate her baptism in.

He and I both agree the two religions are very similar and I do not want to get into THAT debate on here. Instead, we're trying to figure out if the Catholic church (es) on STT is more English or Spanish? We'd love any information on either faith and the churches available on island from anyone who attends either church.

from my LIMITED experience, I think the Churches are more English. I've attended Holy Family Catholic Church, as well as St Peter & Paul. I do know that St Peter & Paul has a "Spanish-spoken" Mass each SUnday at 12:15, but the rest of the masses are in English.

St Peter and Paul Roman Catholic and All Saints Anglican/Episcopal both have cathedral schools in town, also. Both are very historic churches.The "Catholic School", as it is called, has educated generations of Virgin Islanders. The Anglican Church used to be called the English Church (as opposed to the Danish Church, the Lutherans.) There are 3 Episcopal churches and 2 Episcopal missions,including one on the east end.:)

I've thought about a church-affiliated school for our daughter, but we won't need that for a few years yet (she's 5 weeks old today). But if we stay longer than the 5 year minimum for his job transfer, I will really be looking into it for her.
