Vieques, Puerto Rico



Lucas Endicott

On Feb. 8th and 9th, 2020 we will celebrate the good work God has done! Bishop Farr and Bishop Ortiz of Puerto Rico will be traveling to the island of Vieques to celebrate our connection and the completion of the church in Esperanza. Festivities will begin in Vieques on Saturday, Feb. 8 at 11 a.m. and conclude in the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 9th. Join the celebration!

Saturday, Feb. 8th will begin with a tour of the completed church, clinic, and guesthouse. This will be followed by lunch and an afternoon of visiting houses that have been repaired in the community. Saturday evening will be free.  

Sunday morning we will join to celebrate with the congregation in Esperanza with a bilingual worship service led by Pastor Alex Gerena. Following worship, we will have lunch on the beach with members of two Methodist churches on Vieques and members of the community.

PLEASE NOTE: Attendees are responsible for their travel to and from the island of Vieques.

Attendees should arrange airfare to and from San Juan International (SJU). From SJU people may either fly to Vieques on a smaller aircraft (Cape Air, JetBlue and Seaborne all make this flight) or travel to the ferry terminal at Ceiba. Passengers may travel to the ferry terminal via car rental, taxi, Uber, Lift, or taxi service like Luquillo Taxies, or Go Puerto Rico Shuttles.
