A Community of Caring Experience
Feb 2020
Enthusiastic parishioners led by a skilled leader, Father Jim, added up to a joyful renewal. These Franciscans have really made a difference to so many and are getting the word out via moving stories of success like that of a young man named "Bam Bam" who is about to attend a university to study architecture.

The parish serves meals to children and motivates behavior change with innovative programs like a free bike for records of perfect attendance.

In the small world category we sat next to Brother Andy at Sunday Mass. He was visiting from Burlington Wisconsin, the hometown of my wife.

Mass is at 10 am on Sunday. Arrive 20 minutes early to enjoy the flavor of the community. Linger after Mass to discover so many interesting and compelling personalities.

Yes, visit here.

Our family of 11 went here for Sunday mass and it was amazing---the priest, Father Jim, welcomed everyone and was a wonderful speaker---he was real! The music at the beginning was lovely, but once the kids choir left the guy playing the piano worked hard to listen and play by ear. The service was really nice and a positive experience. Thank you!

Lovely Mass
Oct 2019
Beautiful community, so vibrant, a pity not all churches are like this.

Even my husband who is not a catholic came with me and enjoyed being there.

Thank you to Fr. Jim for being so helpful.

If we return to Jamaica we will certainly attend Mass at this lovely church

Well worth it for a great Mass in Negril
Mar 2019
We have been traveling to Jamaica for over 20 years as a family and have gone to Mass all over the island. This was our first time at Mary, Gate of Heaven and we could not have been more happy. Father Jim is a very welcoming pastor and the service was meaningful and spiritual. There is a great diversity among the congregants with locals welcoming the tourists. There is ample opportunity to meet with members of the community, and to do volunteer work while you are there. If you are are in Negril, make sure you take time from your vacation to worship at this lovely church.

"Uplifting Mass"
Jun 2019
This Sunday Mass was an uplifting experience. The children sing several hymns at the beginning of the Mass. On the day we attended, the van with the children was a little late, so, the congregation sang until the children arrived. The priest and local parishioners were very welcoming to the vacationers. The mass time during the summer is 10 am and for those taking a taxi to the church, the service lasted 1 hr. 15 min. The church is open air with fans and no AC.

If every mass could be like that...
Mar 2019 • Couples
I don’t go to church now days, but this priest and his mass in this cute little church should be a model of what mass should be. We had a wonderful time, and the 1hr1/2 went by so quickly. Song from the children makes it very lively.
Every one fells welcome. His speech was smart and kind.
I recommend it (Sunday 10am) even if you are not religious.
