|Action continues in Year of Faith – Jan 27|
By Vernon Khelawan
The Revitalisation of Catholic Culture and Identity will continue to be an Archdiocesan Pastoral Priority this year, running parallel to the Year of Faith being observed by the universal Church. For this reason Catholics here at home should gear themselves for much action.
As early as yesterday (Jan 26), the Evangelisation Commission kicked things off by observing a day of “Prayer and Fasting for our Nation”, at Our Lady of Mt Carmel church, St Mary’s Junction, Carapichaima.
The Evangelisation Commission offered 2 Chronicles 7:14 as a point of reflection: “If my people who bear my name, humble themselves and pray and seek my presence and turn from their wicked ways, I myself will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and restore their land.”
As soon as Lent begins, the Sanctuary of The Holy Family in Diego Martin will host its second annual Divine Mercy Conference at Capital Plaza (formerly Crowne Plaza hotel) on Wrightson Road, Port of Spain, beginning on the evening of Friday, February 15 and ending on the afternoon of Sunday, February 17.
Sessions of vibrant praise and worship, Eucharistic adoration and prayers for healing are included in the three-day programme.
With the theme “Rekindling our Faith”, the conference fits neatly into the Year of Faith and will feature several dynamic speakers from the United States and from here at home.
Among the US-based speakers are Thomas Smith, a regular host on EWTN television, Michael McGlinn from the community Face of Mercy, and Bro John Paoletti of the Marian Evangelisation Team at the National Shrine of Divine Mercy in Massachusetts. Fr Ian Taylor will be the featured local speaker.
Contribution to the event is $300 per person.
