More about Jamaica Outreach

Since the fall of 1997, St. John the Evangelist Church in Naples, FL has been serving the poor of its sister parish, St. Pius X, in Kingston, Jamaica. St. Pius X is located in a desperately poor section of Kingston, where neighborhood residents have little hope for a better life. The St.. Pius X compound now includes an on-site food pantry, medical-dental-optical clinics , and job training center. These facilities are funded by donors to Jamaica Outreach Program (JOP) and make the compound a vibrant gathering place for community outreach to the poor. 

JOP also supports other schools in poor communities in or near Kingston: St. Benedict the Moore, African Martyrs of Uganda, St. Peter Claver. 

In 2017 JOP added support for education, health and food programs in the Montego Bay Diocese.
