Please Join Us...

There are a thousand reasons we love Grenada, but our friends here on our island paradise top the list. We have been incredibly blessed to have developed life-long friendships here and are grateful we get to share this special day with many of you. Below you will find additional information, driving directions, and a simple way to RSVP. We hope to see you on

What is a 'blessing'?

The naming and blessing of a child (commonly called a baby blessing) in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka Mormon Church) is a non-saving ordinance performed by a member of the priesthood (traditionally the father or close family member) soon after a child's birth. The purpose of the practice is twofold: to give a baby an official name and to provide an opportunity to give a blessing for the child's spiritual and physical welfare. 

What is a 'Sacrament Meeting'?

I could explain this, but a simple YouTube video I found is a lot more interesting. 

(The only difference is that April 10th will be a "Fast and Testimony Meeting". During the meeting, members of the congregation who feel prompted go to the podium and share (or "bear") their thoughts (or testimony) with the other members. It is called "Fast" and Testimony Meeting because healthy members choose to fast on this Sunday for two meals and donate the money they would have spent for those meals to the church's welfare program.)

Where is the church? 

The local 'branch' of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meets in a converted house (the yellow marker) on the road to town along Grand Anse. It is the 4th building on the left past the future location of Silver Sands (the gray marker). 

Where will refreshments take place? 

Refreshments will take place at Candle Glow Apartments at the most inland area of Lance Aux Epines. To get to Candle Glow, take the last right (that has signs for "Quality Services") as you are heading towards the white-tire roundabout. Follow that road and look for sings for Candle Glow, the gate will be on the right-hand side. Feel free to park in the small lot just outside the gate (the yellow marker). The exact location is on the ground-level, through the white picket fence underneath the large house at the top of the driveway (the blue marker).

How can I RSVP: 

Please let us know (here) by Friday, April 8th if you'll be joining us. We hope to see you there!
