Vatican regional rep describes visit as ‘a moving experience’
Fr Robert Stark SSS, the Vatican’s regional Coordinator—North America, Mexico, Central America, Caribbean, Migrants and Refugee Section has described his four-day visit to Trinidad December 16–21 as “a moving experience”.
Addressing a media conference at Archbishop’s House on December 20, Fr Stark said, he was “privileged” to listen, and see “the way people here are animated by their faith and by the gospel, both migrants and refugees and victims of human trafficking and people in parishes and ecclesial communities”. Archbishop Jason Gordon chaired the briefing. Also present were chair of the Archdiocesan Ministry to Migrants and Refugees (AMMR), and the Catholic Commission for Social Justice, Leela Ramdeen; AMMR Coordinator Simone Francois-Whittier; Living Water Community co-foundress Rhonda Maingot, and Rochelle Nakhid, coordinator of LWC’s Ministry for Migrants and Refugees.
