The BVI Beacon, a weekly newspaper, is the repository for all classified advertisements on the islands. If you're looking for a job? Check the Beacon. Want to buy a used car? It's in the Beacon. Internet advertising is unheard of here.

All of that said, the classifieds in the BVI can definitely be a little different from what you might find in the US. In the most recent week's edition, the following appeared under the heading "Miscellaneous":

MAY THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude help of the hopeless pray for us, Amen. Say this pray three times a day by the ninth day your pray will be answered. It has never known to fail. Publication must be promised. A.E.

If you'd like to explore the Beacon's classifieds further, you can find them online on their website:
