The MORNE JAUNE chapel of St. Theresa of the child Jesus

Image

This chapel was renovated some years ago, between 2004- 2005, when Fr. Vincent Esprit FMI was parish priest. This was the first time I experimented with a slightly curved suspended ceiling in a small chapel and found the acoustical qualities impressive.    Since that time I have become  bolder and bolder in designing and executing curved ceilings in various chapels, such as in Loubiere, Belle vue Chopin, Capuchin, Cockrane, Bourne and Capuchin. Some of these ceilings I posted on this website for your review.

The parishioners in Morne Jaune have done an excellent job in the upkeep of their chapel, on which they worked very hard.  The contractor was John Hope better know as “PABLO”.

The celebrant is George Guillet, FMI.      He was a French missionary who worked extremely hard in and devoted his life to  several parishes in St. Lucia and Dominica.

One thought on “The MORNE JAUNE chapel of St. Theresa of the child Jesus

  1. Fr. Vincent Esprit FMI

    Dear Bernard,
    Thank you very much for this email with the attachments of the beautiful churches in Dominica. I was particularly pleased to see all the chapels especially that of Morne Jaune and San Sauveure. However I did not see that of the Cathedral of the South East – La plaine ….smile.
    With the reflection of the Sunlight on the windows the interior of the Church in La Plaine presents itself as a serene place of worship reflecting the different colours of the rainbow which can be associated with the different peoples in the world ….my own humble interpretation.
    Thanks for your help and guidance in transforming the Churches of Morne Jaune and La Plaine and La Roche to a lesser extent.
    May Saint Kateri Tekakwitha bless and guide you, your work and your family and the Bishop and Diocese of Roseau.

    Have a blessed day ! Fr. Vincent Esprit FMI
