I love this little church, the Nazareth Evangelical Lutheran Church. It is right in Cruz Bay, across from Cruz Bay Landing, and the doors are almost always open during the day.
There is also almost always somebody in the chapel, and he is happy to greet you if you just say you wanted to look around.
Here’s a virtual tour of the chapel on the Ceremonies St. John Website.
A lot of people get married in this church, there is a joyful-sounding Sunday service there, and, if you’re a Kenny Chesney fan, you know the song “Lindy.”
“He plays piano at the church when nobody’s watching.” That’s the church.
“He used to sneak in there a lot,” says Ceremonies St. John’s Stacy Mulcare. “I once saw him play at Grumpy’s, where the Cruz Bay Boutique Hotel is now. He was a gifted musician. Always classical music.”
We’re told Lindy was nondenominational and played other church pianos too.
