FLUs meet online, discuss works of mercy during COVID-19

The Archdiocesan Family Life Commission (AFLC) met online on April 30 with representatives of  parish Family Life Units (FLUS) and persons interested in parish family ministry throughout the Archdiocese. The Zoom platform session was facilitated by the Episcopal Delegate for Family Life, Tricia Syms.

Some of the parishes represented were: Our Lady of Perpetual Help, San Fernando; St Peter’s, Pointe-à-Pierre; St Benedict’s, La Romaine; St Michael’s, Maracas, St Joseph; Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Port of Spain; Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Carapichaima; St Theresa’s, Barataria; Holy Cross Princes Town; St Philip and St James, Chaguanas; Our Lady of Fatima, Curepe; Rosary, Port of Spain; Santa Rosa /Malabar, Arima; St John the Evangelist, Diego Martin; San Raphael, San Raphael; Church of the Incarnation, Maloney, and St Francis of Assisi, Sangre Grande.

During the session, four distinct levels of Church were identified: the Universal Church led by Pope Francis and all the cardinals and bishops in union with him; the local church or Arch/Diocese led by the arch/bishop who is uniquely positioned to guide the faithful on how best to live the faith; the parish, from which we receive most of our religious instruction and the sacraments; and finally, the Domestic Church which plays a key role because it is the primary place where we practise coming to intimately love other persons.
