ordination-gemin

Rejoyce with the church of Guadeloupe. Saturday june 8, 2013, in the cathedral of Sherbrooke (Canada), Mgr Luc Cyr, archbishop of Sherbrooke, ordained 4 young men : Grégory Gémin (from Guadeloupe), Charles Vallières (from Québec, Canada) and Olivier Mondon and Emmanuel Pothin (from the french island La Réunion). Grégory Gémin has had a difficult childhood in Guadeloupe and almost fell in juvenile delinquency. He then encountered a group of prayer who encourged him to participate to World Youth Day in Toronto in 2002. There, he encountered a charismatic renewal community named “Famille Marie Jeunesse”. He joined the community in Sherbrooke (Canada) and stayed also in other houses of the community in France, Belgium, Réunion, French Polynesie, … Let us thank the Lord for all the marvels He does. He elevates those who humiliate themselves.

New Bishop of Guadeloupe pledges to Listen to the People

  

Bishop Jean-Vves Riocreux, installed as Bishop of Basse Terre & Pointe a Pitre in Guadeloupe last Sunday at a packed Basse-Terre Cathedral, pledged to the people of Guadeloupe that he would constantly listen to them and their concerns.

He was responding to the repeated urgings of the Papal Nuncio to the AEC Archbishop Nicola Girasoli to “ à l’écoute, à l’écoute, à l’écoute” (listen, listen, listen) to the people and to the tremendous enthusiasm of the people of the diocese who now have a bishop after four long years of waiting following the retirement of their previous Bishop Ernest Cabo in 2008.

Great news for Guadeloupe

Papal representative Archbishop Nicola Girasoli announced that Pope Benedict XVI  appointed Monsignor Jean-Yves Riocreux bishop of the diocese of Pointose in France to be the new Bishop of Basseterre-Pointe a Pierre (Guadeloupe) from Friday 15th June 2012.

Jean-Yves Riocreux was born on February 24, 1946. He was ordained priest on 1974, at Marlhes for the Diocese of Noumea.

He is currently the liaison of the French bishops with more that 100 French speaking parishes overseas including in the US.

This appointment means all territories in the Antilles Bishops’ Conference now have bishops appointed.

Only one diocese, Montego Bay currently under Episcopal Administration of Bishop Tiedemann of Mandeville, does not have a resident Bishop. .
