Spiritual renewal, fellowship at Lenten Mission 2023


Hundreds of Catholics came together to renew and recharge their faith at the Archdiocese of  Nassau’s first in-person city-wide Lenten Mission under the theme Walking Together in Faith and Gratitude.

Archbishop Patrick Pinder welcomed those in-person and watching virtually, expressing that he “is pleased that we are able to gather in-person once again for our annual City-Wide Lenten Mission in historic Loyola Hall.”

Historic, the Archbishop explained, because it was the first place where the general public received Covid vaccinations. So, for many, he said, Loyola Hall is a place that represents hope, healing and comfort.

He noted the Mission’s theme, “ties in the dynamic of the synodal process,” which Pope Francis has engaged the global Catholic community.

The New Providence Lenten Mission was held February 27–March 3 at 7 p.m. and in Grand Bahama, March 6 –10, at Mary Star of The Sea parish at 7 p.m. .

Beside Archbishop Pinder, the other speakers were Deacon Eardley ‘Danny’ Price – ‘Walking together … in Marriage and Family Life’; Fr David Cooper – ‘Walking Together in Discipleship’; Fr Glen Nixon – ‘Walking Together in Faith and Gratitude…from a Biblical Perspective’; and Fr Kendrick Forbes – ‘Journeying Together toward Forgiveness and Reconciliation’.

Both Lenten missions concluded with Holy Mass with Archbishop Pinder as the chief celebrant.
