Father (Fr) John Persaud from Guyana, has been appointed Bishop of the Catholic Church in Mandeville, Manchester.
During a Zoom meeting with fellow members of the Catholic Church, Persaud received much encouragement and advice.
Persaud says he is anxious to get to Jamaica to get the ball rolling, however, there have been no flights out of Guyana to get to the island.
As he prepares to depart the Catholic church in his birth land Guyana, he is determined to do God's work where ever he was sent.
The Most Reverend Francis Alleyene, Bishop of Georgetown, Guyana, said Persaud's departure from the diocese is a huge loss."
