We're raising funds to build St. Therese Chapel with the hopes of touching Catholics who live in Coral Bay and the many tourists and vacation owners who visit these shores. We began renting John's Folly Learning Institute in April 2014 to celebrate Mass. We celebrated the Sacrament and used the temporary location as an instrument for new evangelism. We took the gospel into Coral Bay, as Pope Benedict instructed, reaching many Catholics and returning visitors. After Hurricane Irma destroyed John’s Folly, we purchased 2.8 acres in the heart of Coral Bay in February 2018 with the vision to build St. Therese Chapel. We also hope to build a multi-purpose hall that will serve all of the residents of St. John.

 

You can help us bring this vision into reality, by first, joining us in Prayer. The second thing you can do is to donate below, where you have the options to give incrementally or make a one-time donation. Any small amount goes a long way. We thank you and we appreciate you helping us move forward, working together, building the Kingdom of God.
