Some of you might remember that Catholic Second Wind Guild has a Chapter in Barbados that has been dormant since Bishop Gordon became Archbishop of Trinidad and Tobago. However, we have gotten some good news recently that two of the seminarians we have been helping, on and off, will soon be ordained deacons! They will be ordained today by Archbishop Gordon for the Diocese of Bridgetown (Barbados), but in Trinidad where they have been studying in the seminary because of COVID.  We wish them well as they continue on to priesthood, God willing!

Even though Archbishop Jason Gordon is now the Archbishop of Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, he is still the administrator of his old Diocese of  Bridgetown, Barbados, until Pope Francis names a new Bishop. 

In the last couple of years, our Catholic Second Wind Guild, with the skilled guidance of our local Tim Schoenbachler, has proudly underwritten the publication of two of Archbishop Gordon's books, with a third one presently in process. 



Through a couple of generous donations from our supporters, we were able to offer a little bit of assistance to a few exemplary grade school students at the Saint Patrick Roman Catholic Primary School ( attached to the Cathedral Parish) in Bridgetown, Barbados. Many parents made a valiant effort to pay the school fees last term, but fell behind when they lost their jobs when their work places closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The economy of Barbados, so connected to tourism service jobs, has taken a terrible hit.
