Bishop brings together poor Caribbean communities by building unity

2016-04-27

Bishop Jason has not just one but two dioceses under his jurisdiction. Both of his territories in Bridgetown in Barbados and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Bishop Jason grew up in Trinidad and was and continues to be an active member of Living Water Community, a charitable ministry to the poor  made up of volunteers. It was there that he witnessed, first hand, the alarming surge in gang violence and poverty in his community and decided to tackle the situation head on.

BISHOP JASON GORDON
Bishop of Barbados
"We are a very small Church because Barbados was a thoroughly British colony, where Catholicism was always a minority religion. And now, the Church has woken up and people are getting confidence. People are starting to see a future.”

His faith and deep relationship with God led him to the priesthood when he was in his late twenties. His involvement with the Church helped him expand his sense of community in order to mediate and bring about a peaceful solution. He managed to do this by returning the power and control held by the gangs to the local people.

BISHOP JASON GORDON
Bishop of Barbados
"All the parishes are working with the pastoral plans, to try and reach out further, to try and form their people, to try and cultivate missionary disciples and to really have a sense of church on mission.”

This Caribbean community has served as a powerful pillar of strength for the most unprivileged in the West Indies. Bishop Jason along the local Living Water Community in Barbados have teamed up with other charitable organizations in different island territories in an effort to heal those that are physically and spiritually starved. 

BISHOP JASON GORDON
Bishop of Barbados
"In 2014, Barbados went through a very serious economic bump. The government laid off 3,500 workers and the private sector also laid off quite a few workers. In an economy where you only have were you only have 227,000 people in the whole country. That is a big number because it represent a lot of families being affected.”

Because of this crisis, an organization called the HUB-People Helping People was launched. He has coordinated with other catholic charities to help bring some new found light into those that have been financially marginalized due to unforeseeable circumstances. 

This small island nation is no stranger to hard times, yet its inhabitant's overwhelming ability to stand up is a feat larger than life.
