Archbishop Jason Gordon launched the ‘TT Parish in the 21st Century’ initiative at St Francis of Assisi RC Church, Sangre Grande earlier this month with the creation of the Toco/Matelot, and Sangre Grande/Coryal clusters. Both clusters were previously joined as one cluster.
The initiative will engage recently ordained priests and fourth year seminarians under the guidance of moderator, Msgr Michael de Verteuil. The seminarians residing in these clusters will work with clergy as part of their overall formation. Gary Tagallie, head of the Office of Pastoral Planning and Development, is assisting in this process of formation.
Present at the launch were Archbishop Gordon, Msgr de Verteuil, Frs Simon Peter Ango, Raymond Francis and Matthew Ragbir, Rev Lindsay John, Gary Tagallie and seminarians Frantzo Simbert (Dominica), Kenwyn Sylvester, Kwesi Alleyne and Stephan Alexander.
