SEPTEMBER 14 - ARCHBISHOP'S OFFICIAL + PDF Print E-mail

OFFICIAL

DEAR SISTERS AND BROTHERS,

We continue to pray for Archbishop Harris as he meets with Vatican officials in an effort to place Caribbean concerns more clearly and forcefully on the agenda of the Holy See. May Bishop Llanos be truly energised and inspired by the course for new bishops so that he will be a fully effective auxiliary to Archbishop Harris.

On Tuesday September 16 we will witness the Opening of the 2014-15 Law Term. We pray for the legal profession that they may play a positive role in the ongoing saga of our democratic development. May all Catholic lawyers be acutely aware of their obligation to pursue justice for all and to lead the way in the promotion of the highest professional and ethical standards in the practice of the law. May God richly bless all those who do pro bono work for the poor and the voiceless.

Fr Clyde M. Harvey

Acting Vicar General.

REGENERATING THE MORAL AND SPIRITUAL VALUES OF OUR SOCIETY

By Vernon Khelawan

Now that all the major political parties in the country have signed the innovative Code of Ethical Political Conduct (CEPC) promulgated by a number of the country’s leading civil society organisations and chaired by Archbishop Joseph Harris, the question remains: Is this action a genuine sign of impending change in the way our politics are conducted, particularly on the heated hustings in an election year?

Independence Day message - Aug 31 PDF Print E-mail

Archbishop HarrisFollowing is the 2014 Independence Message of Archbishop Joseph Harris:

This year 2014, our Independence Celebrations take place on Sunday, the Day of the Lord. Because our celebrations occur on Sunday, it forces us to make the link between Independence, the freedom from Domination by others and what Sunday means for us, believers and followers of Christ Jesus. Jesus rose from the dead on Sunday. He conquered death and sin, the cause of death and rose to new life. This is the day that we have traditionally dedicated to the worship of God. On this day we give thanks as we remember our deliverance from sin and death. In this year 2014 we also remember and celebrate our Independence. Is there a link or rather must there be a link between these two remembrances?

Statement on Middle East violence PDF Print E-mail

Wednesday August 13

Brothers and Sisters,

All of us have been anguished by the events unfolding in the Middle East and other war-torn regions of the world over the past few weeks. Pope Francis has sent Cardinal Fernando Filoni, who visited us last year, as his special envoy to the people of Iraq. I have sent in the name of the Archdiocese a letter to His Eminence expressing our solidarity with him on this important mission on behalf of the Holy Father. The Archdiocese will also send a small contribution to the humanitarian work which the Cardinal will organise in the name of the Church.
