January 2014 Journal

Dear Parish

Just an update on my journey. On Wednesday of the past week I arrived in Barbados, but didn’t reside in the College until Saturday, due to college rules as it relates to students arrival. Today marks the beginning of the new semester. The courses that I am enrolled in are as follow; Canon Law, New Testament, Old Testament, Systematic Theology 2, Evangelism 2, and the rest which ought to total up to 11, are pending.  Pertaining to my spiritual formation, chapel remains 15 times a week, which is arranged 3 times daily; Morning prayer-7:00am, Midday Prayers-12:00pm, Evening Prayer-7:00pm. As one would observe the journey while being here is quite demanding, but extremely beneficial. 

            Currently, there are 11 seminarians in Codrington. Five Bahamians, two Guyanese, one Bajan, one Venetian, one Antigen, and one Trinidadian.  The amount of lecturers for the semester is pending. All of which build up the community that we all are enjoying and embracing. On Sunday past I worshipped at Holy Cross Parish, nothing much have changed about the parish over the break. Holy Cross is the Church that all first year students are assigned.

            Once again I would like to thank you for your contribution towards my spiritual and academic endeavors.  Please continue to pray for the community, myself and the theological maturity of God’s Church. Also pray for the awakening in our community a missionary eagerness and the enhancement of pastors, missionaries and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel. 

P.S Today I will be going to the dentist to check my teeth as the water in these parts affect them greatly.
