The Caritas Dominica Youth Emergency Action Committees launched and commissioned its Roseau and Environs Team on January 17 during a ceremony that took place at the Roseau Cathedral Chapel.
Bishop Gabriel Malzaire, the Chairperson of Caritas Dominica officiated at the celebration and explained the mission of Caritas. “Caritas is the humanitarian arm of the Catholic Church reaching out to the poor, vulnerable and excluded, regardless of race, gender or religion, to build a world based on justice and fraternal love. Caritas is Latin for love and is guided by the core values and key principles of Catholic Social Teaching. Caritas Dominica is affiliated to Caritas Internationalis, the world’s largest Catholic development and emergency relief agency.”
