Lent 2021

You are here

Jamoly has been part of the Mustard Seed Communities family since he was abandoned as an infant at the hospital. He has hydrocephalus and was not expected to walk or even speak.

Thanks to your support, today 5-year-old Jamoly talks in full sentences, is crawling and able to pull himself up to stand. His caregivers say they think one day he will walk. Thank You Lord!

Please consider a Lenten offering in support of Mustard Seed Communities, so that together we may continue to care for Jamoly and the hundreds of individuals relying on us for their care.

Day of Prayer and Fasting - March 24, 2021

Mustard Seed Communities is inviting you to join us for a day of fasting and prayer on March 24th to unite yourself with the residents and staff of MSC who are going without. They are going without the comfort and companionship of their missionary family. They are going without our talents and gifts. They are going without our extra hands. Offer your prayer and sacrifice for them.

Start your day of fasting with Mass live from Jacob's Ladder in Jamaica. At 8 a.m. EDT, we will be streaming Mass on Facebook and on our website with Father Garvin Augustine in the chapel of St. Andrew's House of Formation.

The future is bright for Kimoya. At 6 years old, she loves school, reading, and helping her fellow residents. Her teachers think she may be able to join general education classes.


Kimoya was 2 years old when she arrived at Mustard Seed Communities in 2016. Kimoya is hearing impaired and, at first, she was not able to walk far without falling down. With physical therapy and leg splints fitted for her, Kimoya is now walking and running around her home of Gift of Hope in Jamaica. She has had hearing tests and will soon receive a hearing aid. Her caregivers believe she will be able to speak fully. Every day is a new day filled with possibilities for Kimoya.


Moya is a resident at Blessed Assurance, our apostolate near Montego Bay, Jamaica. Although Moya cannot hear or speak, you won't find it hard to know what's on her mind. She has a bright smile and contagious laughter to share with everyone. She finds joy in crafts, especially jewelry-making! Thank you for sharing your smile with us every day, Moya.


Volunteers and supporters, like you, mean a lot to the residents at Mustard Seed. You're a tremendous source of care, companionship, and connection to the rest of the world. With the current pandemic, one of our residents, Lincoln, wanted to share this message.
