New book on Irish Dominicans in T&T

The Irish Dominicans have a longstanding history of service to the Church of Trinidad and Tobago, much of which has been documented in publications by Sr Marie Thérèse Rétout OP, Fr Marie-Joseph Guillet OP, Fr Bertrand Cothonay OP, Fr Vincent Leahy OP, and the Catholic News.

They are remembered for their involvement in the building of schools, churches and chapels, and in the establishment of the 126-year-old Catholic News.

A new focus however is taken in a 244-page book, Extracts from the Archives of the Irish Dominicans in Trinidad and Tobago [1895-2018].  A collection of personal letters exchanged, this new book gives insight into the interior life of the priests of the period as they pursued their vocation and service in the prisons, General Hospital, orphanage, Regiment and Coast Guard, Society of St Vincent de Paul, credit unions, “as well as non-parochial activities”.
