“Great small Church”

Mary, Gate of Heaven Catholic Church
Ranked #15 of 59 things to do in Negril
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 June 2017

You have to look for this smaller church as is is on a very busy part of a main street. Doors and windows are open and it is a great church experience. Priest was easier to understand than many here in the states. The only reason I rated it as a four is that there was a pan-handler in the church and was asking for personal donations as we were leaving the church.

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. It was a beautiful service. The palm part of the service was outdoors - beautiful to worship with both the community and other tourists. I would return when back in Negril.

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 Jamaican spirit of joy and godliness to start off your week.
Very special.
