THE early morning’s light rain may have been God’s way of showering blessings on seminarians Stephan Alexander, Kwesi Alleyne, Mikkel Trestrail and Kenwyn Sylvester who were ordained deacons last weekend.

Families, friends and well-wishers of the candidates gathered February 23 at the St Philip and St James Church, Chaguanas to witness the young men take another step in their faith journey. The ordination Mass also streamed live on Facebook. A combined choir with members from GRACE, Gasparillo, San Raphael, El Socorro, Chaguanas parishes and Mt St Benedict led the lively singing.

The nearby Max Murphy Centre on the church compound had additional chairs and a television screen to accommodate those unable to find seating in the church for the special liturgy.
