One individual has responded to Bishop Gabriel Malzaire’s call to raise money for the Cathedral renovations.
He is Sheldon Narine, a Deacon from Trinidad & Tobago, who is also a comedian and famously known as the “Crazy Catholic.” He will be performing at the Arawak House of Culture on Friday, July 27 at 8:00 p.m. and the Portsmouth Church Hall on Sunday, July 29 at 7:00 p.m.
Sheldon is the only clergyman in the world that is a comedian and has been making people laugh for the last 28 years. He is totally committed to restoring family values and, as such, does not resort to profanity to entertain his audience. He is also a certified Youth Speaker and will be working with youth attending the Youth Series hosted by VF Inc., some of whom will be participating in the comedy production.
Bishop Malzaire said he’s delighted that a member of the clergy has responded to his call, “Fundraising activities for the renovations have to be ongoing so we are grateful to members of our congregation who took the initiative to invite Sheldon to Dominica to put on a show for this cause and very thankful to him for responding positively. He has directed over 100 plays and focuses on family theatre so this is a show that entire families across generations can attend. It will be an evening filled with laughter so we’re inviting everyone to support this effort.”
Chairperson of the Cathedral Fundraising Committee and CEO of VF Inc., Dr. Valda Henry, was elated to learn that his trip would coincide with VF Inc.’s 2012 Youth Series. “As a Youth speaker, he will be working with participants on their self-esteem, self-confidence and motivating them to be the best that they can be so we are very excited about his participation and the fact that some of the youngsters will be part of the Show.”
Tickets are available at Fadelle’s, VF Inc., members of the Cathedral Fundraising Committee and the Portsmouth Parish Church office.
