Since the destruction caused by hurricane DEAN in 2007, the Catholics in Calibishie have been without a proper Place of Worship.

They are like the Israelites wandering in the desert.  First they were allowed to use the government school for Sunday Mass. This was declared unsafe  some time ago. Then they move to a former disco in expectation that their new chapel would be built.  Design Calibishie chapel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In August 2012, after much fundraising, delays and prayers, the new chapel was finally started.

In January 2013, several days of voluntary labour (cou-de-main) completed the concrete floor and the walls.

As soon they were able, the people moved in and Sunday Eucharist celebrations has now been taken place in the unfinished chapel building.Eucharistic celebration in unfinished chapel in CALIBISHIE
