On Tuesday, November 6, 47 young persons between the ages of 14 and 20, from the Laventille/Morvant Pastoral Area (LMPA), comprising the parishes of Our Lady of Fatima Shrine, Upper Laventille; St Jude’s Chapel, Trou Macaque; Corpus Christi, Success Village, and St Dominic’s, Morvant, received the Sacrament of Confirmation. The sacrament was conferred upon them by Archbishop Charles Jason Gordon, at the Corpus Christi RC Church. Parish Priest Fr Trevor Nathasingh concelebrated the Mass.
At the beginning of the Mass, Archbishop Gordon commented that it gave him such joy to see a church rocking in praise, referring to the vibrant and energy-filled praise and worship session that took place before the start of the liturgy. He said that this was the first time he did a Confirmation ceremony that was so charismatic and that he thoroughly enjoyed it.
The Archbishop’s message to the candidates was profound as he told them that the happiest life they will ever have is when they live for God’s will. He encouraged them to “stop and ask God what is His will for their lives”.
