2019 Jamaica Mission Trip
"Smile Jamaica - One Love"

The 2019 Holy Cross Mission Team returned from Kingston, Jamaica on Friday, Feb. 22. Some were a little sunburned. Others were still recovering from ant bites or lack of sleep. But all of us brought back with us a huge helping of the love and generosity that we had experienced during our eight days on this beautiful island. One of the highlights of the trip was the completion of our house build in Swallowfield -  a very poor neighborhood in Kingston. It was so inspiring to hear the heartfelt words of gratitude from Miss Joel Kerr who received the keys to the house that we built through "Food for the Poor". One other highlight was certainly the farewell celebration at Riverton Meadows Early Childhood Centre during which Ms. Sandrina Lewis, the General Manager of St. Patrick's Foundation, sang "Smile Jamaica". Although we felt sad to leave our many new friends in Jamaica we realized that we can continue to share the love we experienced with our families and friends here in Canada. Thank you to everyone who supported this year's Mission Trip, especially the Archdiocese of Kingston, Ontario. We were blessed to be part of it.
Mr. Chris Forster, for the 2019 Holy Cross Mission Team
