The Roseau Cathedral is still four (4) million dollars short of being renovated says Bishop of Roseau Gabriel Malzaire
The Roseau Cathedral is still four (4) million dollars short of being renovated says Bishop of Roseau Bishop Gabriel Malzaire.
The Roseau Cathedral renovation project which began in 2013, at an estimated cost of 2million, has now gotten an estimated renovation cost price of 12 million dollars.
Many have argued that the amount of money being spent on one building to worship the creator, could be used to not only build a new church, but also build houses for the homeless and elderly.
Persons have questioned over the years, why does God need a 12 million dollar building for worship, and monies collected every Sunday, when his greatest commandment was to love thy neighbor as thy self, and do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
It’s been 7 years now since 2013, and Bishop Malzaire says that so far, the flooring of the building is still being worked on, but the roof is however completed.
He explains that things have not been moving at the rate that they have been expecting, and is calling on persons to offer their monies to help build the cathedral
