THE CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE IN ST. JOHN’S ANTIGUA WEST INDIES dominates the capital city of Antigua. In approaching the City of St. John's from every direction, and also from the air, the twin towers of the Cathedral, which is set on a hill, are visible, distinctive, and an important point of reference. Before these towers were severely damaged in the earthquake of 1974, the Cathedral's clocks provided the time with reasonable accuracy for all residents, nationals and visitors alike.

The Cathedral has played an important part in the political and cultural history of the island. As a result, the people of Antigua of every, or no religious persuasion, feel that they have a particular claim to regard the Cathedral as their own. It is for such reasons that the Cathedral is considered to be a national monument and will be listed as a protected historic building in the National Trust legislation currently under preparation at the initiative of His Excellency the Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda, Sir James Carlisle.

THE PRESENT CATHEDRAL

The present Cathedral is the third building on the site. It was completed in 1847 and consecrated as a Cathedral and Parish Church of St. John on 25 July 1848. It can still be described in the words used for its immediate predecessor, as "an excellent building, superior (architecturally) to anything of its kind in the West Indies”

At the west end, the Cathedral is dominated by its distinctive twin towers, 70 feet high. The cupolas which crown the towers are aluminum in color. In its day, the design was controversial and it was criticized by ecclesiastical architects as being like "a pagan temple with two dumpy pepper pot towers". However, in more modern times, it has been called "the most imposing of all Cathedrals in the West Indian Province".

The building has been described as a "church within a church". The exterior is of sandstone, covered with a cement wash which is probably responsible for having preserved the exterior walls from erosion and flaking. The roof of heavy corrugated iron is painted a silver color. The interior is of pitch pine considered to be of very superior quality. This method of construction was intended to secure the building from the most severe devastation either by earthquake or by hurricane.

The Cathedral and its churchyard are surrounded by a brick wall, and the iron gates at each entry were erected by the vestry in 1789. The south gate, the original main entrance, is topped by two figures, cast from lead and covered with whitewash, representing St. John the Baptist and St. John the Divine. They are said to have been taken from a French ship destined for Martinique by a British Man-of-war cruising the Caribbean in 1756, during the Seven Years War between Britain and France.
