Atheism a concern for Catholic church
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH is trying to get young people interested in church again.
This was revealed today by Bishop of Barbados Jason Gordon who said more young people were becoming atheists.
“In Barbados in the last census in 2010 there are 49 000 people now who say they have no religion and that for Barbados is a very high number,” he said.
Gordon was speaking at the Living Water Community in St David’s, Christ Church during the 9th Annual General Meeting of SIGNIS Caribbean, a Catholic communications organisation.
“We are finding a generation growing up in households where they have no reference to God and then we find that atheism is completely normal,” the bishop said.
The meeting which focused on training Catholic leaders from the Caribbean in the area of technology will end today. (MR)
