Fr Harvey shared some thoughts on the relationship between the church and society with UWI Today. Was there some point in your life—some interaction or event—that caused you to choose the path of the priesthood?
When I was 17 years old and thinking of studying philosophy, politics and economics abroad, Archbishop Finbar Ryan told me in his unique deep-throated tones, “You are to be a priest, my son. You are to be a priest.” A questioning began then about my life purpose. I entered the seminary to determine if that was really my calling; and that only became clear over time, when I was already in seminary and a student at UWI.

After an opening prayer by Vicar General Msgr Robert Llanos and welcome by band leader Rev Derek Walcott, Msgr Llanos gave a presentation on Leviticus, the third book of the bible.
Msgr Llanos’ presentation was followed by a parade of the colourful costumes designed by well-known designer Chris Santos and Gregory Medina. The general opinion was that the Catholic band’s offering will be popular in 2013 and the band can expect even greater support next year. The band house is situated at 19 Taylor Street, Woodbrook.

Priest's Retreat in Mayaro

Last Monday, on the feast of St Thérèse of Lisieux, Archbishop Joseph Harris, for the first time as head of the local Church, joined a number of priests working in the archdiocese for an annual priests' retreat.
Some 40 priests, comprising diocesan and members of religious communities, gathered in Mayaro for the three-day retreat, which was arranged by Vicar for Priests Fr Clyde Harvey and the Personnel Board and the Council of Vicars. The Year of Faith, to be launched in our archdiocese on October 14, formed the backdrop of the retreat.
The themes "The Truth of Faith", "Joy of Faith" and "Faith as Cross and Resurrection" informed the reflections, led by Frs Martin Sirju, Ian Taylor and Hugh Joyeau.
Archbishop Harris was chief celebrant at the Mass which closed the retreat last Thursday.
