Kneelers and Hymnals in the various churches.

You are kindly requested to safeguard our church pews and kneelers, during the Liturgy of the Eucharist, prayers and meditation. After communion please put down and lift up the kneelers very softly and gently as your fellow parishioners are praying or meditating. Parishioners are also kindly asked not to bend the Hymnals or the pages as markers while using them.

In church you will come across individuals from all walks of life. Doctors, teachers, nurses, mechanics, you name it. Therefore it’s no surprise that amongst the congregation we have a renowned fashion guru.  What is astonishing is that this special member in our congregation, Mrs. Carmen Carrington, who hails from Grand Case, is 100 years of age, making her the oldest living Catholic on Sint Maarten. Sitting comfortably in her rocking chair on a sunny Saturday afternoon, Mrs. Carmen reflected on her years giving back to the Catholic church. Mrs. Carmen began sewing on Sint Maarten at an early age before moving to Manhattan, where she continued sewing, making her name as a renowned seamstress. By the time she returned to Sint Maarten Mrs. Carmen was the most sought after designer
