A bit of Caribbean Church history was created last Monday with the launch of the first mobile phone application in the Antilles Episcopal Conference, which will allow smartphone users anywhere in the world to download information about the Archdiocese of Port of Spain.

The Catholic Media Services (Camsel) mobile application, or app for short, will allow users to search for parishes based on their GPS (Global Positioning System) location; access Catholic News content and an events calendar; view a daily devotional, as well as a parish and school directory; sign up for a monthly newsletter; and connect to the archdiocesan social media accounts.
Camsel is the parent company of the Catholic News and the app was designed for Camsel by Caribbean Ideas Limited.
Camsel New Media Manager Tracy Chimming encouraged users to download and share the app with their friends, co-workers and family, both local and overseas.

For the next few weeks, until December 14, one lucky person residing in Trinidad and Tobago who downloads the app and registers will have the opportunity to win a Samsung Ace 3S smartphone, courtesy bmobile.
bmobile, a local mobile phone provider, has decided to collaborate with Camsel for the app’s launch campaign, and will join Camsel as it promotes the app in parishes across the Archdiocese.
“The best way to think about the Camsel mobile app is to imagine having the entire local Catholic community in your pocket,” Chimming said. Users won’t ever have to miss another harvest, workshop or wonder about the phone number of any parish. The Camsel mobile app is compatible with iPhones and Android devices and is available to be downloaded free of charge.
Find a parish near you, learn about upcoming events, stay inspired with the daily devotional, access the Catholic School Directory and get current Catholic News reports – all now available in your pocket!

He has been urging secondary school students to commit their time and talent, voluntarily, in the vineyard of the Lord. He has identified those one or two post-secondary school and pre-university years as particularly appropriate for this selfless service.

‘Miracle workers’

Teachers hailed for success stories in classrooms of violent T&T

The nation expects teachers to work miracles with children – and they have been doing just that, says Tobago lay minister Richard McFarlane.

Addressing Catholic teachers last Wednesday on the theme Revitalising Moral and Spiritual Values in our Schools: Restoring Discipline, Respecting Authority, McFarlane commented that the problem of student indiscipline and lack of respect for authority was but “a reflection of the type of nurturing we have provided as a society and as a nation”.

Archbishop laments lack of respect

By Lara Pickford-Gordon

“If people accepted that their bodies were temples of God then their relationships would improve because we cannot treat others the way we are accustomed to if we understood God dwells within them.” So said Archbishop Joseph Harris while delivering the homily at the closing Mass last Sunday at the Catholic Women’s Conference at the JFK Auditorium, UWI, St Augustine.
