Ramil who is assigned to Sandy Point has not arrived yet in the Caribbean. Sr. Margaret Hansen SSpS, pastoral administrator from Molineux parish in St. Kitts was only woman among men. Fr. George Agger, former dean was also invited to share and participate in the meeting. Br. Ivano, a seminarian in Nevis also took part as an observer. Of course the local clergy: Fr. Bernard Latus, the new dean and Fr. Xuan Ho also participated. The meeting was a time of sharing our joys, experiences and concerns and it was good to be together especially for those who are alone on an island.
