Cuba’s bishops have paid testimony to believers’ faith in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, which has destroyed churches and left people homeless. Speaking to Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need, Archbishop Dionisio Garcia Ibáñez of Santiago de Cuba described the havoc wreaked by the tropical cyclone when it struck the island on 25 October.


The Parish Christmas Bazaar will take place again this year in early December (date to be confirmed.)
