Bishops of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC) say they are committed to an intentional partnership in realising the mission of the Church with a special emphasis on accompanying young people. This commitment, they said, will be marked by activities in all the dioceses in preparation for the 1st Mission Congress of the AEC, September 19–22 in T&T.
A release from the AEC said that this “momentous event” will be followed in October by the universal marking of the Extra Ordinary Mission Month themed Baptized and Sent. It said that the process in preparation for these events will be launched with ceremony and “splendid display” at Pentecost in each diocese.
The release also included details on the just concluded 63rd Annual Plenary Meeting (APM) held in French Guiana, May 4–11 at the St Therese Spiritual Centre. The experience, it said, was highlighted by two spirited and vibrant liturgical celebrations—the Opening Mass at the Cathedral Saint-Sauveur de Cayenne and the Confirmation of 622 young people.
