I am happy to announce that ...

... the Barbados Chapter of the CATHOLIC SECOND WIND GUILD has completed its first project! 

For the last several months, I have been leading priest retreats in the United States and Canada. The money that I make from doing these retreats I am funneling to my retirement ministry, R J MISSION PROJECTS and CATHOLIC SECOND WIND GUILD, to help support the church in the Caribbean Dioceses of  Kingstown in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Bridgetown in Barbados. 

R J MISSION PROJECTS and CATHOLIC SECOND WIND GUILD  have completed several projects in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, but from my most recent priest retreat funds I have been able to send US$10,000 to my friend Bishop Gordon for his television project. The project is outlined in his letter to me in May of this year. 

I am so happy to be able to support this project which will help him reach the practicing and lapsed Catholics of his diocese as well as many people throughout the whole Caribbean.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgetown requests $10,000US to purchase equipment to produce television programs for the people of Barbados and the Caribbean.

In March 2016, Flow Cable Network signed a contract with Trinity Television Network to carry Trinity TV in the twenty eight countries where Flow currently operates. Trinity Television is owned and operated by Living Water Community a Lay Catholic Community that begun in Trinidad in 1975. It runs a 24/7 Television Catholic channel.

This new opportunity means that the Church of Bridgetown can do productions in Bridgetown and have them live on Trinity TV for the whole Caribbean. It also means that all our video production will be produced to be aired on Trinity. This is the beginning of a truly Caribbean Catholic channel.

To participate in this great opportunity the Diocese of Bridgetown requires $10,000US to purchase cameras, a switcher and sound equipment to be able to begin production. The second phase of this project will involve building a studio where productions could be done on a regular basis. These productions will reach the people of the Caribbean. But in a special way it will reach Catholics, churchgoing and lapsed in Barbados to invite them to participate more deeply in the life of the Church.

This is part of our outreach for the new Evangelisation.

With gratitude, for your kind consideration

Most Rev. Charles Jason Gordon

Bishop of Bridgetown
