In 1986, Fr. Charles Vermeulen C.Ss.R. and Belgian volunteer Filip Dedoncker establish the SMA workshop in order to produce quality furniture for churches and have a CXC training program for the students at SMA. This CXC program has successfully trained hundreds of SMA students. The teacher for the last 15 years is Mr. Steven Dailey. He is a very committed teacher.
Diocese Construction employed former employees of the workshop and they specialized in local wood products. Their names are Anthony Joseph, Ronald Joseph, Mc William Rolle, Ferdinand Webster.
They are the once who produced several items for the upgrading of the liturgical space in Our Lady of Fatima church in Newtown. The baptismal font was ordered by Fr. Charles Vermeulen C.Ss.R. It was constructed in several rings of local White Cedar.
