We are the People of God in Trinidad and Tobago, building the Civilization of Love – reconciliation with God, neighbour, creation and self – through:

  • The New Evangelization
  • Revitalizing Catholic Culture and Identity
  • Regenerating the Moral and Spiritual Values of our Society


Almighty God
You have called us to be your Church here in Trinidad and Tobago

Be with us in the power of Your Spirit as we move forward together, striving to continue the work begun at our Synod.

Send forth your light and your truth – let these be our guide.

Protect us from all that may lead us astray.
Keep us united in constant prayer with Mary, our mother, so that together we may make Your Church alive and present in our land.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen


Chairman of the Synod Committee Fr Allan Ventour has addressed a special message to synod delegates as preparations for the third sitting of Synod continue. In his letter to delegates, parish priests and parish coordinators Fr Ventour writes:

You the 785 delegates are drawn from the parishes, ecclesial communities, commissions, councils and secretariats and will play a crucial role in the Synod process. Delegates please bear in mind that you are the Church and without you the Church is incomplete. The contribution that you are currently making and will make at the third sitting is crucial as the Church tries to be alive and present. You should be actively involved in at least one area of parish ministries (Catholic Education, Family Life, Stewardship, Youth, Evangelisation, Catholic Communication, Social Justice and Catechetics).”
