The third time was the charm. I had walked by the Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul twice before and it was locked up. Persistence pays off – it was open on my third trip.
There are about 20,000 Catholics living in Tunisia. The Catholic Church still owns the Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul but services are not held here on a weekly basis. It appeared to me the Cathedral was more a tourist attraction than a religious site.
