Rome names first ever West Indian Cardinal

Repeating Islands


The Roman Catholic Church named the English-speaking Caribbean’s first ever Cardinal over the weekend. A Dominican by birth, Kelvin Edward Felix is Archbishop Emeritus of Castries, St Lucia. The government of St Lucia today extended its congratulations. The Catholic Church across the Caribbean is celebrating the nomination.

In Trinidad and Tobago Father Christopher Lumsden told parishioners that this is probably the result of a visit to the Caribbean last year by a senior Cardinal from Rome, who Lumsden speculated must have made recommendations that the Caribbean needs a Cardinal to represent it in the Vatican.
