Singing Lord’s song in their own land
IT HAS?taken four months and near $400 000 but the congregation at St Catherine’s Anglican Church are now back in their traditional place of worship and no longer have to sing the Lord’s song in a strange land.
The church, enhanced and modernized after heavy lightning damaged the roof and dismantled the structure at East Point, St Philip last July, had its first service since February, yesterday morning.
A packed congregation including Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, Members of Parliament Michael Lashley and Adriel Brathwaite and Justice of Appeal Sandra Mason, were in attendance for the near four hour-service of rededication.
Stuart, who sponsored one of the new windows of the church, said he was delighted that the congregation was back in familiar surroundings with the installation of a new roof, the restoration of the bell tower, new chandeliers and a $94 000 organ.
