FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Kingston, Jamaica – May 8, 2017
The Stella Maris Church is very honoured that the Most Hon. Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, has agreed to be the Guest Speaker at their biennial Fundraising Dinner to be held on June 30. All proceeds from the event will go to the various ministries operated by the Church, including the Stella Maris Foundation in Grants Pen.
“The Stella Maris Foundation has been a key partner in social and community development,” noted PM Holness. “Its community outreach programmes, particularly in the Grants Pen area, have served to build the social and economic capacity of residents. The Foundation, in partnership with HEART Trust/NTA has trained more than 1000 youth in the area most of whom are now employed. Stella Maris must also be commended for its feeding programmes for street people, the indigent and the elderly. With such a wonderful track record of service, I am honoured to give my support and speak at the Church’s Fundraising Dinner.”
Chairman of the Stella Maris Church Council Edward Shoucair says he is looking forward to the usual enthusiastic response, particularly because they have such a distinguished Guest Speaker. “PM Holness’ participation is true affirmation of the service we give to the community.
The Pastor, Fr. Howard and the Stella Maris Family are truly grateful for the blessings from God and the support we receive.”
The event will be held at the Spanish Court Hotel, starting at 7:00pm with cocktails, followed by dinner and entertainment.
