Christmas 2020

We will remain apart as a congregation for a while longer, even as we come closer together in spirit. We will remain resolute and tenacious, passing our courage and determination to those within both our personal and virtual orbits. Mostly, we will do as God would have us do: survive first and foremost; and emerge from this trial stronger than we were when we began, with a faith in God’s strength and mercy forged in the fire of crisis. Be strong, Praise. Though the salvation of modern science is in sight, this long night of the pandemic will be at its most dangerous just before the dawn of the return to life in the middle of 2021.

Order of Distinction

Bishop Lennox Walker, Lead Pastor at Praise Cathedral Worship Centre, has been honoured by Jamaica with the Order of Distinction (rank of Officer) by Hon. Andrew Holness, Prime Minister of Jamaica.

Summer 2020

Our Provincial Government has announced plans in Phase 2 of reopening for churches to be able to gather again. However, this reopening must be approached with all the precautionary measures advised by the public health authorities.

As your Pastor, I am not only called to feed my sheep, but I am also called to protect them. Therefore, I am ensuring that all health and safety protocols and resources are in place for us to safely gather for worship. The health and well-being of all our members and visitors is my foremost concern and number one priority currently.

Week of June 7

We have seen what prejudice, discrimination or hatred directed at someone because of colour, ethnicity, or national origin can lead to. Racism is an attack on the image of God that has been given to each of us by the Maker.
