An acquaintance at our resort asked the priest at this church to renew their wedding vows at mass. They actually made the couple a cake and invited them to stay for a small celebration. I didn't know people like that existed anymore!

We loved going to the 10am Sunday Mass here. The priest is very welcoming...walks around shaking hands, asking where everyone is from...most of the people at Mass were tourists. Worth an hour of time away from the beach to attend. Recommend highly.
