Dear faithful of Christ
IT IS with great pleasure that I congratulate the St Joseph Catholic Church on the celebration of your 150th Anniversary. As we reflect on the long history of the church here in Spanish Town, it is truly remarkable to imagine the generations of persons who have entered this church and worshipped here over the years. Within these walls, for 150 years, the Word of God has been planted and nurtured and has come to fruition in the priests, religious, deacons, and faithful lay persons of St Joseph’s who continue to build God’s kingdom and spread God’s Word.
We are grateful to God for St Joseph Catholic Church and the work that He has done here. We pray that He will continue to guide and bless you for many years to come. Yours in Christ, THE MOST REVEREND CHARLES H. DUFOUR Archbishop Emeritus of Kingston Apostolic Administrator, Diocese of Mandeville
