Churches in St. Paul’s held a prayer walk and worship session 3rd August, that attracted participation sports groups, youth groups, members of the community and its parliamentary representative Dr. Denzil Douglas, all walking in solidarity and with prayer against crime and violence.
Speaking with MyVueNews.com earlier, Ercille Williams-Caines, one of the coordinators, explained that the march would start and end at the Robert Llewelyn Bradshaw Park Memorial Park, walking from the main road right around the village with several stops for prayer and worship.
Caines said, “The objectives of the this activity are to have the community turn to God when in need of help, to raise awareness of crime and violence in St Paul’s and to encourage members of the community to rise up and make a difference.”
Like other communities on St Kitts, St Paul’s has experienced a rise in criminal activity over the years.
Designated prayer stops included in front of the Church of God, outside of the Wesleyan Holiness Church, the National Bank ATM, the St Paul’s Primary School, the Old Recreation Ground and the Robert Llewelyn Bradshaw Memorial Park.
At the Robert Llewelyn Bradshaw Memorial Park this evening, the marchers engaged in praise and worship that involved an intercessory prayer, along with a special music performance and a challenge from Rev. Damian Hughes of the Methodist Church, and an address by Dr Douglas.
