OUTSIDE THE PULPIT: Basking in St Joseph’s glory
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honoured, all the members rejoice with it. – 1 Corinthians 12:26
I could not resist joining the members of the St Joseph Parish Independence Committee last Sunday evening as they celebrated their win in the Spirit Of The Nation show, for the first time after so many years of taking part, with a motorcade through the parish. It was a great pleasure to be driven around.
As chairman of the St Joseph Constituency Council, it gave me a golden opportunity to have a further look around the constituency. I really had to be there for as St Paul points out, when there is joy we should be part of it and when there is sorrow we should also be part of it!
St Joseph received the following awards in the show:
• Most Outstanding Parish Ambassadors
• Most Outstanding Attendant
• Committee Of The Year
• Project Of The Year
• Project Presentation – third place
• Third – Flower Garden
• Third – Mini Park
The 2012 St Joseph Parish Ambassadors are Kimberley Knight and Rommell Marshall.
Knight, 26, of Blackmans Tenantry, is a student at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus pursuing a Master’s degree in financial and business economics. A fitness and exercise regime is an integral part of her daily routine.
Marshall, 24, of Parks Road, is also a student at Cave Hill pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in dance and film.
He is an avid sports enthusiast and enjoys a good game of basketball.
Attendant Caroline Woodroffe-Holder is a hard worker and did a very good job with the ambassadors.
I congratulate them all for making St Joseph proud.
I am sure that such a win will be an inspiration to the young people of the parish of St Joseph who will keep the light burning.
