We went o mass there during Christmas

No AC, but well ventilated.

They open all the doors and windows.

Christmas mass was 1 hour exactly, which should mean that the normal Sunday mass should be 1 hour or less.

There was AC when I got married there in January

This catholic church in Playa del Carmen is located at 12th St. and 15th Ave. It's really easy to find. The 15th Ave. is two-blocks west from the famous 5th Ave. The mass on Sunday is at 8 am, 10 am, noon, 6pm and 8 pm. I really liked attending the mass in this church. It was an uplifting experience for me.

We loved it when we were there, too! Even thoughit was all in Spanish (of course!) it was easy to follow, and with such a mix of locals, and tourists - you feel very comfortable being there!

Did they have missals or other worship aids to follow the Spanish?

My husband just attended for the 2 weeks we were there. He says there are aids - gospel in English, etc. He just loves this church.

I don't remember that they did. Maybe --- but we didn't use anything!

[quote=GeeRoxx;1376767]As an update I was able to contact the church a few times now and had my friend translate everything. There are 3 priests who can conduct weddings in English. Fr. James, Fr. Bernard and Fr. Jorge.

Could someone please tell me if these priests are still in Playa? As i understand it I think Fr Jorge has now moved?
We were bringing our local Priest with us to do our wedding in March at xcaret...and now unfortunately he can't make it. So we need to find a local bilingual priest asap *panic*
google keeps finding me non-denominational ministers i tried the church link but it isnt loading!

I know this is an old post -
But does anyone know if there are rules for photography inside the church on 5th ave? Has anyone got married there and remember anything about the photography? I'm shooting there in 2 weeks...
just wondering, thanks

Generally, if it's a Catholic Church, stay off the Sanctuary around the altar, and don't use flash photography. Beyond that, arrive early and talk to the priest or deacon witnessing the wedding! Follow those basic guidelines and you should be ok!

Ok thanks man! I'm not knowledgable about that religion's expectations... but I'll be sure to stay respectful. I don't want to end up like that now infamous youtube video:
