From Venezuela to vocations, AEC discusses its vision

AEC bishops in French Guiana

President of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) Bishop Gabriel Malzaire of Roseau (Dominica) has expressed concern for the crisis in Venezuela and the concomitant refugee situation as experienced in Trinidad and neighbouring countries.

He however commended the Archdiocese of Port of Spain for its efforts in creating a ministry towards the people they receive. Bishop Malzaire acknowledged that the bishops are “at a loss to know how else we can assist as a Conference, in a crisis which is escalating in magnitude”.

In delivering his address at the 63rd Annual Plenary Meeting (APM) in Cayenne, French Guiana, May 5–11, the AEC president spoke of other areas of concern to the Assembly of bishops.
