The for­mer dean of Holy Trin­i­ty Cathe­dral, Port-of-Spain, said in­spi­ra­tion can be drawn from our Mus­lim broth­ers and sis­ters who have al­so adapt­ed to the COVID-19 re­stric­tions in the Is­lam­ic holy month of Ra­madan which be­gan on April 23

Pres­i­dent of the In­ter-Re­li­gious Or­gan­i­sa­tion of T&T (IRO) Rev Dr Knol­ly Clarke says to not on­ly think of COVID-19 but al­so about oth­er peo­ple fac­ing crises around the world.

He was speak­ing at the IRO’s Na­tion­al Day of Prayer event via Zoom, on Sat­ur­day.

“We must not on­ly look at the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic but there are al­so oth­er chal­lenges peo­ple in the world are fac­ing, like the dis­as­ter in St Vin­cent, In­dias and oth­er places where peo­ple are suf­fer­ing.

“Al­though our build­ings are closed, the peo­ple of God in the di­verse com­mu­ni­ties can car­ry out the min­istries and mis­sions of God, re­spect for one an­oth­er, and the na­tion.

“This year of prayer, we can­not meet to­geth­er in any big place, but each one of us in our cor­ner can car­ry on that prayer­ful sit­u­a­tion not on­ly for T&T but for the world over.”

Clarkes said it was al­so In­ter­na­tion­al Labour Day or May Day when unions stand up for jus­tice. “We have our own Labour Day on June 19, where our labour unions cham­pi­on the rights for our work­ers and cit­i­zens and Fr Mar­tin Sir­ju al­so has a like-mind­ed mes­sage for jus­tice and peace in the world.”

Re­mind­ing mem­bers in the vir­tu­al con­gre­ga­tion that faith with­out works is dead, he dis­closed that the An­gli­can church was send­ing re­lief parcels of food and oth­er items to St Vin­cent Bish­op Leopold Fri­day and oth­er groups were get­ting to­geth­er to do re­lief ef­forts as well.

Clarke said St Vin­cent pro­vid­ed T&T with food from the earth and now the na­tion must re­turn that favour.

He said while char­i­ty be­gins at home, we al­so need to be mind­ful of oth­er peo­ple in the world who are in need.

Clarke said due to the COVID-19 re­stric­tions, places of wor­ship will be closed on Sun­day, how­ev­er parish­ioners can at­tend mass vir­tu­al­ly via Zoom.

The for­mer dean of Holy Trin­i­ty Cathe­dral, Port-of-Spain, said in­spi­ra­tion can be drawn from our Mus­lim broth­ers and sis­ters who have al­so adapt­ed to the COVID-19 re­stric­tions in the Is­lam­ic holy month of Ra­madan which be­gan on April 23.

Clarke said their prac­tices were still car­ried out, such as the break­ing of the fast, known as If­tar, but it would not be tak­ing place at the mosques as tra­di­tion­al­ly done but at their homes.
