“Great Mass!”
Reviewed 5 January 2014

My husband and I attended Sunday Mass here while we were on our honeymoon. The priest greeted us right away and was very warm and welcoming. The children who were in attendance sang and played music before the service started- it was a wonderful place to worship, right in the heart of Negril.

“Christmas Eve service”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

What a sweet little church. My family and I went to Christmas Eve mass and felt very welcomed. The priest is very mild mannered but well spoken. We had a rasta guy playing tambourine to our Christmas Hymns at the back door- so funny- authentic

“Wonderful place to worship”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

We have been traveling to Jamaica for the past 17 years. Recently we began attending mass at the church. Fr. Jim is a great speaker, and the entire service is lovely. Over the years, we have gotten to know some of the congregation members, and have started spending some of our vacation days at St. Anthony's Soup Kitchen, which the church operates 5 days a week. What a blessing that is! Check out their website at www.negrilcatholicchurch.catholicweb.com for opportunities to make your vacation truly memorable, and to come home with so much more than just an awesome tan!

“God is good”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

When in Negril make a point of worshiping with this loving Parish. It has always been a wonderful experience. We are made to feel welcome and part of the liturgy. The exuberance is refreshing. Will continue to vist each time we come to Negril. God bless.

“Sunday Morning”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Went to a service at this small, open air church. Lots of singing. Darling children. One old woman swayed and danced to the music in the front of the church. Very nice experience. On the plane ride home, a fellow traveler met a person who travels to Jamaica twice a year to volunteer at that Church. Lots of poverty and joblessness in Jamaica.
