Greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus the Christ.
We have learnt of the health challenges of the Reverend Father & Mrs. Raymond Roberts of the Archdeaconry of Grenada. Your prayers are requested for them and family at this time.
Friday, the 16th of July 2021, the Reverend Miss Kadisha Smart arrived in Saint Lucia to begin her placement in the Parish of Holy Trinity, Castries, with St Mary the Virgin, La Caye. Reverend Smart will reside at the Curate’s Lodge, Trinity Church Road, Castries and has immediately entered a two-week period of home quarantine. Let us uphold her in prayers as she begins the Diaconate ministry and continues her training for the Priesthood.
The Diocesan Youth Co-Ordinator, Mrs Sheree-Ann Auld-Mark, has asked to share the following:
- There will be a meeting for all youth in the Diocese on 1st August 2021, 5:00 pm via Zoom.
