Beausejour, Carriacou, July 3, 2014- Encouraging the population of Carriacou and Petite Martinique to have a deep connection with God is one of the main objectives of the “Day of Prayer”, organized by the Division of Youth, Sports and Religious Affairs within the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs in collaboration with the religious community.

The event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, July 6th, 2014 at the Hillsborough Tennis Court commencing from 4 p.m.

Youth Project Coordinator Linton Lendore said spiritual upliftment and empowerment is important for daily living. He noted that while their focus is on the youthful population they are encouraging all citizens to attend the event.

The event is being held under the theme; “Come watch with me”.

In 2013 Government set aside $500,000.00 for what is termed a “Faith Based Fund for Youth Development”, to provide small grants to faith based organizations to undertake youth projects in their respective communities.

Minister for Youth, Sports and Religious Affairs Emmalin Pierre said the partnership is intended to ensure young people experience positive transformation in their lives. She urged the religious leaders to put aside the “petty differences” and work together to assist the nation’s young people to become better citizens.
