Bishop of the Roman Catholic Church, Gabriel Malzaire will on 7 August 2015 launch his third book entitled ‘Christ & Caribbean Culture(s)’ at the grounds of the Bishop’s House on Turkey Lane, Roseau.

The Book Launch and Cocktail, which will take place from 7PM, is among activities organized by the Cathedral Renovation Fund-Raising Committee to raise funds to meet the estimated expenses of renovating the Cathedral.

‘Christ & Caribbean Culture(s)’ focuses on the Caribbean Church in its attempt to unravel the significance of the Christ-Event in the Caribbean context.

Tickets to the Book Launch and Cocktail cost EC$100 and includes the cost of one book.

Tickets are available at the Bishop’s Office, Roseau Cathedral Presybtery, Bulls Eye Pharmacy, VF Inc. and from memebers of the Renovation Committee. Additional books cost EC$40.

The Roseau Cathedral has been under renovation for over three years and was estimated at a cost of eight million dollars.

The project, now in phase four which entails the placement of the roof, is three million dollars short for completion.

In June 2014, government donated half a million dollars towards the renovation project. Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Roosevelt Skerrit who presented the cheque to Bishop Malzaire said one of the main reasons for the financial assistance was because the Cathedral is a tourist attraction.
