NOVEMBER 23 - ARCHBISHOP'S OFFICIAL + PDF Print E-mail

DEAR SISTERS AND BROTHERS,

Let us support our fellow citizens who have been affected by the terrible flooding this past week in whatever way we can. Guided by the Gospel text for today’s celebration of the Solemnity of Christ the King, let us serve God by serving our brothers and sisters in need.

Thanks to Rev Mike James for his service to the Caribbean Church – and this Archdiocese – as General Secretary of the Antilles Episcopal Conference. May God continue to bless him and his family as he retires to a new ministry in Mexico. We welcome Fr John Persaud as the new General Secretary and wish him well.

We are approaching the end of another liturgical year and it has been a year of many blessings and challenges for the Archdiocese. We have been a Church in mourning and a Church in celebration at various times, and we thank God for it all. Let us be mindful to live in such a manner that, again as in today’s Gospel, we will hear the King say, “Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take for your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world.”

One of our achievements this year has been completing 70% of the restoration work on the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. We must press on to the May 2015 target date for completion. I thank you for your continued generosity in supporting the Archbishop’s Appeal and remind you that the collections at this weekend’s Masses go towards the Cathedral project.

+JOSEPH HARRIS

Archbishop of Port of Spain

Bishops propose mediation - Oct 7 PDF Print E-mail

Dear Citizens,

As the hunger strike wages war on the body of Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh, so do the anxiety levels and causes for concern rise across the nation. The various media reports indicate mixed views but the tone reflects a wounded Trini spirit, hopefully not fatally. As we continue to appeal on humanitarian grounds for a meeting of minds on the issues, which now command international attention, we appeal to that which is noble, sensitive and powerful among us.
