Now in my adult life, why would I submit to another group controlling me? I had so many questions. Faithfully, I attended my classes, inquiring and seeking from Father Minott to explain what I had grown up believing. I was well on my way to being baptised.” … “I am now confirmed in my faith! As I kneeled before The Bishop and felt his hand laying on my head, I remembered a few days earlier Father Thompson poured the holy water and baptised me in the name of The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. Dean Tenia being led by the Holy Spirit to give me the names Deborah and Esther. I was overwhelmed with emotion. I thought about my journey to that moment and all of the members of the clergy who assisted me to getting to this point and all I could say was, Thank You Jesus!”

What I enjoy most about the UWI Mona Chapel is the way in which the sermons are structured and delivered. The sermons focus on using biblical lessons to directly solve issues within our Caribbean context. It is not merely abstract theology. After each sermon, I leave the chapel in a thoughtful mood and as the week goes by, I think about the lessons that were imparted on deeper levels. I feel empowered to challenge and bring down ideologies of inequity within our society and contribute to the building of a nation that is peaceful. Being introduced to these sermons has shown me that going to church is not just a routine that was enforced from childish days, nor is it a “feel good” experience for a few hours. Going to church is a lifestyle fueled by the love of a Creator for humanity. In fellowship with one another, we share in this love and gain ways to spread it to those in our circles of influence.”

Born in Trinidad and Tobago, I was raised in the Christian (Anglican) faith all my life, and coming to a new country by myself I knew one thing had to remain consistent, church. I attended UWI Mona from 2012 to 2015 pursuing a BSc in Geology and Geography.
Getting to know the campus I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was a church nearby, and of my same denomination. Fr. Garth and the long standing members of the church provided a welcoming space for me not only to grow in faith, but also to seek counsel during some of the rough times experienced during University life. I attended church as regularly as possible.
The small gatherings, potlucks and visits to other parishes/venues we some of my most cherished activities done with the church members, who eventually became my church family. It still brings a smile to my face whenever I think back on it.
If I had any words of encouragement to new Christian students of UWI Mona it would be to stay grounded in your faith. This is no easy task and you should not do it by yourself. Seek counsel and guidance from the welcoming arms of the church and it’s members. Fr. Garth and the congregation did that for me.”
