Lara Pickford-Gordon writes about a Church facility that cares for teenaged mothers-to-be.

The Mary Care Centre (MCC) was recognised for its contribution to the development of women with a gold medal at the 2015 National Awards ceremony on Independence Day at Queen’s Hall.

Dr Cynthia Low Chew Tung, a member of the Mary Care Board, received the award from President Anthony Carmona on behalf of the organisation.

In an interview on the facility, chair of the Board, Deborah de Rosia, said the award was an honour for the Catholic Church and the late Archbishop Anthony Pantin who started the centre.

The property at Gallus Street, Woodbrook where it is located was acquired with assistance from government in September 1980. And with the process of beatification for Archbishop Pantin started, she said the award was a step in the right direction for his vision and humanitarian care to be recognised by society.

Beloved Presentation College, San Fernando music teacher Anthony Lee Mack, 67, passed away peacefully last Sunday.

On July 18, Lee Mack and his wife Cynthia received an apostolic blessing from Pope Francis for their “splendid commitment to the excellence in Musical Direction, Leadership and Performance at Presentation College, San Fernando and at the Pro-Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, San Fernando.” The Lee Macks also received individual silver medals as an expression of Pope Francis’ “gratitude for their continuous and generous commitment to the Catholic Church”. The couple would have celebrated their 33rd year of marriage in December.

A gathering of family, friends, past and present staff and students and others was planned for last Thursday at the college to pray and reminisce about Lee Mack, who was known as an avid ham radio operator and Carnival judge. Described as a humble yet extraordinary man, Lee Mack entered the college in 1960 as a student and joined the staff in 1974.
His funeral Mass was to be celebrated yesterday, Saturday, at 1 p.m. at the Pro-Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, San Fernando.

On Sunday September 14, members of the St Benedict’s RC Church (La Romaine) Youth Group, visited the Animals Alive Centre.

The centre, which is located at Ralph Narine Trace, South Oropouche, cares for abandoned and abused animals from across Trinidad and Tobago. Eleven members from the youth group spent the day assisting the caretakers by walking and bathing the dogs, planting flowers around the facility and cleaning the dog kennels. The young adults of the group did an excellent job of service and a special thank you goes out to them! The group plans to visit the shelter again in the near future to continue its service work.
