West Bay’s Boatswain Bay Presbyterian Church marked the launch of Honouring Women Month with a special church service this past weekend.
At the service, featuring prayer and worship in song, held on Sunday, March 5, each woman present received a gift in a purple theme.
The congregation heard from Minister of Education, Employment and Gender Affairs Tara Rivers who gave an address, as did acting program coordinator for the Family Resource Centre, Charmaine Miller.
Church member Eziethamae Bodden recognized and presented the representatives from the Family Resource Centre, the Crisis Centre and Minister Rivers along with Chief Officer in the Ministry of Community Affairs, Youth and Sports Dorine Whittaker with plaques to mark the occasion.
Also, to their delight, each child was presented with a set of purple bubbles.
“We are happy so many of our men and children wore purple in celebration of our women,” said Ms. Bodden.
The service, which also included a children’s message from Renee Ebanks was followed by refreshments and fellowship.
