Easter Eggs

Easter Sunday here on St. Croix is really celebrated by spending time with friends and family and enjoying lots, and lots, of good food. While many locals spend Easter weekend camping on the beach, residents and visitors alike can enjoy an Easter feast at numerous locations island wide, some even offer live music. Here are a few of the places that are open on Easter Sunday:

If you are planning to attend a delectable Easter buffet or dinner at one of the above locations, please call ahead for reservations.  Also, please be advised that on Good Friday, the Friday before Easter, there are Good Friday Liquor Restrictions in the USVI. On Good Friday, businesses are not allowed to serve 'distilled liquor' from 9am to 4pm; however, you can still enjoy beer, wine, and champagne since they are fermented not distilled. 

If you are interested in attending an Easter service, you will need to call the local church you would like to attend to get service times and information. There is usually a sunrise service held at Point Udall, the island's most picturesque spot to watch the sunrise. Or, you can attend a service at one St. Croix's historic churches, including:

  • Holy Cross Catholic Church:  Originally built in 1755, Holy Cross was extensively altered in the 1850s. It was built in the shape of a cross to represent St. Croix which means “holy cross” in French. It is located on Queen Street in Christiansted. (340) 773-7564 
  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church:  This simple church was built in 1792 to replace an earlier wood structure built in 1766. Located on Hospital and Hill Street in Frederiksted. (340) 772-3658.
  • Lord God of Sabaoth Lutheran Church:  Built in the 1740s, the Lutheran Church is St. Croix’s oldest church. Originally the Dutch Reformed Church, it was transferred to the Lutherans in 1834. Located on King Street in Christiansted. (340) 773-1320
  • St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church:  Built in 1848 to meet the rising expectation of Emancipation, the church expanded shortly after construction to accommodate a growing congregation. Built from local cut limestone, the west entry façade has elements of both Gothic Revival and Neo-Classical style. Located on Prince and Market Street in Frederiksted. (340) 772-0138
  • St. Paul’s Episcopal Anglican Church:  This hybrid church combines an 1812 West Indian hipped roof structure featuring classical and local details with a Neo-Gothic, three-tiered tower built in 1848. Located on Prince Street in Frederiksted. (340) 772-0818
