Deacons Stephan Alexander, Kwesi Alleyne, Kenwyn Sylvester, and Mikkel Trestrail will be ordained to the priesthood next Saturday. The venue for the Mass, which begins at 10 a.m., is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
The quartet were ordained transitional deacons on February 23 at the St Philip and St James RC Church, Chaguanas. Archbishop Jason Gordon will preside at Saturday’s ordinations.
Deacons Alexander, Alleyne and Sylvester began their journey at a seminary in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, as the Seminary at Mt St Benedict was closed at the time. They returned to Trinidad to complete their studies when the seminary was reopened in 2017.
