Housing reservations

Jewel Runaway Bay has informed us that the weekend of Oct. 21 is a holiday weekend, a period when demand for rooms is very high. We have blocked a number of rooms at the rate the church negotiated. If those rooms are not taken by those registered ahead of the increase demand, they will be released to the hotel's Reservation Department for regular booking at a higher rate. Anyone planning to attend the Feast in Jamaica should make their reservation at the hotel as soon as possible.
