The following message is from Fr Martin Sirju, Vicar General and Roman Catholic Church Representative – IRO


In his weekly Catholic News column (March 27), Archbishop Charles Jason Gordon referred to a National Day of Prayer.

He wrote: “On Friday 08th April, the IRO has agreed to a Day of Prayer and Fasting for all religions in Trinidad and Tobago. This is one of the fruits of our synodal listening process. The day provides a graced moment for us to unite our hearts in prayer for our nation and the world.”

On behalf of His Grace, I would like to invite your participation with the following suggestions:

  1. All parish churches be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. to facilitate individuals or groups who would like to come in and pray.
  2. Each hour, prayers be offered for various intentions (see roster below).

iii. All parishes to ensure the roster below is covered.

  1. The theme of our Day of Prayer and Fasting: But as for me I will look to the Lord … my God will hear me. (Micah 7:7)
