Dominican priest, Fr. Elton Letang, has been appointed Parish Priest at St. Theresa’s Parish, Malick, Barataria in Trinidad.

This is the first major assignment for Fr. Letang, who was ordained a priest three years ago.

A letter from Most Reverend Joseph E. Harris, Archbishop of Port of Spain said the assignment took effect on June 1, 2016.

“As you continue your ministry in the Archdiocese, please be assured of my prayerful support,” the Archbishop wrote.

About a year ago, Fr. Letang was named superior of the community of the Redemptorists, the order of priests he belongs to, in Trinidad.

From the community of Giraudel, he was ordained a priest on June 3, 2013.
