Former Archbishop Joseph Harris on Wednesday pleaded with citizens to be compassionate and caring to Venezuelans who have been coming to our shores out of destitution, ill health, hunger and political strife.
Harris made the comment one day after National Security Minister Stuart Young announced an amnesty to Venezuelans residing here to register legally and possibly work for one year in T&T.
Young warned those who fail to register will feel the full brunt of the law.
As the Lenten period begin there is a call for the major faiths in this country to join in a special 24-hour period of prayer.
The call comes from Archbishop Joseph Harris.
