    Not sure about Catholic, but Jehovah's Witnesses have english meetings, they are very good, they sing but are not overly clappy as you have put it.

    kipling - have you found the episcopal/anglican church in gazcue? the episcopals don't have a reputation of being happy clappy. i wish i could give you more info, but i don't have it, though i know a bunch of people here could give you the address if you ask about the Kellogg Library (which is sponsored by the church)

    The Library uses a small room behind the church but it is independent of the church.

    The Anglican/Episcopal church is on Av. Independencia, casi esquina Danae, in Gazcue.

    or YOU COULD GO OUT to Higüey and talk the Bishop into saying that day's Mass in English...He used to do this in the POP Golf Club every Sunday as I was about to tee off!! Good guy...and not so happy clappy....
    Or, you could go to Samaná and talk tothe pastor of the AME Church there. They can do services in English--which you may or may not understand--- and they are a happy and somewhat clappy group...

    Thanks and what a good idea to bribe a priest to say early mass in english ,,actually I live in Zona Colonial and although I speak good spanish I like to have the mass or eucharist in good english and I was most surprised that none of the many churches in zona colonial did not have even one mass in english . The area abounds with people from different countries .
    Now I have been given the idea, I will follow up on it and report back

    A small Catholic church, Parroquia Universitaria Santísima Trinidad, near the intersection of 27 de Feb. and Lincoln, used to have mass in English @ 10 AM on Sundays.

    The church in Gazcue people are talking about is The Church of the Epiphany/The Union Church of Santo Domingo, although unlike the Episcopal church my mom sometimes took me to back home. It's address is 253 Av. Independencia.
