Beautiful old church with a gorgeous view

One of the few historic sites open when the cruise ships aren't in port. Loved the old space. Really transporting.

My friend recommended we attend Frederick Lutheran on Sunday morning. The historic church is beautiful inside with inlay work hovering above the pulpit, "perfect posture" pews, and images of a dark-skinned island Jesus. It was a blessing to see a congregation of mixed cultures and skin tones. If only this beautiful diversity composed more faith gatherings. They served Communion and... More

We did a tour on our own and was amazed with the architecture of the 300 year old church. The wooden rafters were really amazing.

As a Historian, it was imperative for me to take the opportunity to see this historic church. I LOVE the fact that the church was open and available to take it personally. I only wish there was a tour guide or a booklet that gave you a bit more personal information about the church.

They were celebrating their 350th anniversary while my husband and I were visiting. We visited on a Saturday (best to visit on the weekend), so no services being held, but the church was open to visitors and we signed their guestbook. We loved walking through the oldest church building on St. Thomas and 350 years of history!! My husband is... More

We spent a few minutes walking around the church one afternoon to get out of the summer heat. It is a beautiful church from the outside. Also it is clear it used to be a magnificent place inside years ago. The interior now needs some TLC (and a good cleaning). However, if you want to see a building with interesting... More

This was the second stop on our cruise,and we arranged to be married here and had the reception on the ship with our 50 guests.
