On Saturday, November 11, 2011, the Moravian Church Eastern West Indies Province hosted a banquet at the Grand Royal Antiguan Beach Resort in Antigua.


At the event, dubbed ‘A Black Tie Affair,’ educators who are also active in the life of our church were honoured; three from the host conference, Antigua and two from each of the other five Conferences of the Province.


Those selected by the Conferences and honoured were:

Barbados – Sis. Gloria Skeete, Bro. Lisle Map

Tobago – Sis. Roslyn Moore-Alleyne, Bro. Philbrick Smith

Virgin Islands – Sis. Carmen Moorehead Mills, Sis. Jeanette Smith-Barry

St. Kitts – Bro. Sidney Osborne, Sis. Sandra Morton

Trinidad – Sis. Jasmine Jacob, Sis. Trudy Kerr

Antigua – Sis. Ruth Limerick, Sis. Genevieve Smith, Bro. Clarence Edwards

The banquet was also an effort to “kick-start” the fund-raising for a multi-discipline college in Antigua. The Moravian Church has long recognized the importance of education for the growth and development of any people, and from its advent in the Caribbean sought to meet that need of the people. The College would be a renewal of the church’s educational trust at the secondary and tertiary level.

Although it will be located in Antigua, the College will be a Provincial project. This means that all Moravians in the Province are invited to support it prayerfully and financially.

We congratulate the honourees.
