Twenty Ordination to the Premanent Diaconate

Historical Ordination of 20 men as Permanent Deacons took place at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Port of Spain Trinidad yesterday by Archbishop Edward Gilbert. The Archbishop in his homily saw this as the Church in Trinidad coming in its fullness as a Church here in the Caribbean.

Deacon Paul Bousignac makes his promise of obedience to Archbishop Gilbert.
