Archbishop of Port of Spain and Apostolic Administrator of Bridgetown Jason Gordon met with leaders and members of the business community at the Living Water Community Centre on Saturday, November 17 to discuss how the Church in Barbados could respond to Pope Francis’ call for Catholics to listen and respond to the poor.

The forum was a first for the diocese and ended a busy week leading up to the Church’s second World Day of the Poor on November 18. The meeting, also attended by members of the diplomatic corps, was held amidst the economic challenges and restructuring in Barbados which has resulted in job losses in the civil service.
