Holmes Williams passes
FOUNDER OF THE People’s Cathedral Reverend Dr Holmes Williams has died.
Bishop Gerry Seale, who heads the local district of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies, said he passed away at 10:50 this morning after being hospitalized for some time.
Williams, who would have been 76 on December 27, ministered for more than 50 years.
In a statement this afternoon, Seale said Williams’ passing reflected the end of an era.
“Holmes was an incredibly gifted minister of the Gospel. His ministry took him around the world and he touched the lives of millions through his preaching, his radio programme, his books and, in more recent years, through the internet,” Seale said.
He added: “Through his vision and dedication, Holmes took a small group meeting in someone’s home and built a congregation of over 4 000. To that he added a credit union, a primary school and more recently a radio station. His vision was for much more.”
On behalf of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies, Seale expressed condolences to Williams’ wife Rosie and sons Peter, Paul and David and their families. (PR/NB)
