I visited this church for Palm Sunday mass. It was lovely. My background is Baptist/Pentacostal/AME, while my travelling partner was raised Catholic. I felt right at home as the service, while it is structured within the traditional mass, many songs are quite pentacostal/charismatic style. I think anyone would feel comfortable here.

Enjoy the blessings of this small community church in Negril. They support the St. Anthony's Soup Kitchen and Getting Kids to School program. They make a difference!

This is a beautiful little church which is extremely well kept both outside and the surrounding gardens. Inside there is some really lovely local wood panelling and other nice decorations. We went for Sunday morning mass - and had an amazing welcome from the priests there plus the local people. And had a great experience - there's nothing like the... More

This was a wonderful experience to go to church here. If you want to be with Jamaican People this is the place to go. Everyone was welcomed. A newly married couple were blessed by Fr. Jim before the service was over. We plan on going to church again when we come back. I highly recommend this experience.

Father Jim gave a wonderful sermon, and the service was very uplifting and inspiring. I have been visiting Mary Gate for years, and I have always enjoy the music,... More
