World Day Of The Poor
Brothers and sisters

The Holy Father Pope Francis has asked all Catholics to recognize ‘World day of the poor’ on 19th November 2017, under the theme ‘Love, not in word but in deed’.

The diocese has invited Gabriel Malzaire, Bishop of Dominica, to speak on the 15th November, 2017 about ‘the Eucharist and the poor’, the subject of one of his books.  I ask that each of you make a special effort to attend this important session and show Bishop Malzaire our outstanding Barbadian hospitality.

I also ask every parishioner, every family, every parish, every ministry, every community to read Pope Francis’ message and to show at least one act of love and mercy to our brothers and sisters in need on the 19th November 2017 and thereafter. Let us show the vulnerable persons in our society that the Catholic community in Barbados continues to care beyond our words.

With Gratitude
