San Pedro Episcopal Church 

Jobabo, Las Tunas, Cuba

Rev. Santiago Rodríguez Rodríguez, Pastor

The Episcopal presence in Jobabo, south of the province of Las Tunas, dates back to the early years of the last century when the Jobabo sugar mill was built and people from the English-speaking Caribbean islands began to emigrate in search of work. These migrants began to meet initially in the local English Society of Jobabo, and in the fifties they acquired land where the current church was founded the 2nd of April of 1956.

 

Historically in Jobabo people settled from all parts of the world. In this town, Anglicanism reached even the [pre-existing] Cuban population and also to emigrants from Asia, Europe and Africa, several of whom professed other religious beliefs. The Episcopal inhabitants of the place usually say that Anglicanism is more alive when it shares the good news in concert with other denominations.
