As the church of God is a place of reverence and awe for Catholics so too should the body as the temple of the Holy Spirit. Reverence and awe must also be shown for each other.
“In coming in here, we are reminded of who we are: God’s holy people, so when we leave here, we leave with our identities intact and ready to live the mission for which we are called,” Archbishop Jason Gordon said at the dedication of the St John the Baptist RC Church, St Augustine.
The church was closed for a year and a half during which the old structure was demolished and a new one erected. Some parts of the old building were retained.
