This is a really friendly church, full with about half local parishioners and half visitors when we visited. Lovely service with some great resident singing! Also seems to be very involved in the community, actively supporting improved access the schooling and soup kitchens.

We were there for Mass on Christmas Day. The priest came out early to warmly and individually greet each visitor. The music was wonderful, and the parishioners very welcoming--one walked with us to the beach afterwards.

If you are Roman Catholic and staying in the Negril area, do yourself a favor and make the effort on Sunday morning to attend the service. Very spirt-filled and Fr. Jim gives great homilies.
