The Men’s Fellowship of the St. George’s Cathedral,
Archdeaconry of St. Vincent & the Grenadines
The Cathedral Men’s Fellowship was first inaugurated in the 1960’s under the presidency of the late O’Niel ‘Biscuit’ Mc Intosh and facilitated and participated in the development and work of the church through the 1980’s.
The group was resuscitated in the late 1990’s and continues to focus on the areas of prayer, worship, bible study and service to the communion at the St. George’s Cathedral, Kingstown, St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The group accepts the Book of Common Prayer of the Church in the Province of the West Indies and its standard of regularly weekly worship and recognizes the Eucharist as essential to the growth and maintenance of spiritual life.
Consequently, every member is expected to participate in the Holy Communion corporately on the first Sunday of each month, and strive to live and work to become beacons of Christian life through the Holy Spirit.
The Men’s Fellowship continues to seek to bring other men of the church to understand and share in the active work of the church and the inexhaustible advantages of its membership as they seek to strengthen and promote the mission of the church.
The mission of the organization is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially among the men of the St. George’s Cathedral by working as lay ministers together with the clergy to advance the interest of the Church.
