The parishioners of the cluster of Point Fortin, Cedros, La Brea and South Oropouche bade farewell to the statue of Our Lady of Fatima on October 7. Her departure culminated the 15 days of Our Lady’s enthronement at St Anthony’s RC Church, Point Fortin.
During her stay, each parish in the cluster, along with their communities, was responsible for the activities of the day chosen by them. Each day began with the Morning Prayer of the church, and included the praying of the different forms of the rosary; feature addresses by special speakers; praise and worship; and times of quiet devotion and reflection. Holy Mass, with other priests of the Vicariate assisting Fr Antony Baskar, was celebrated each evening to bring an end to the day’s activities.
The visitors consisted not only of the parishioners of the cluster, but of pilgrims from other clusters in the Archdiocese. Also present were visitors from other religious denominations who came to experience the activities.
