A special Roman Catholic mass in Creole marks International Creole Day in Seychelles

A special Roman Catholic mass in Creole marks International Creole Day in Seychelles ( Rev. Fr. David Alcindor of the Roman Catholic Church presided over a mass at the Au Cap District Church that was held completely in the Creole language to show his appreciation of the Festival Kreol event that was being held in Seychelles to mark International Creole Day. The special mass was held in front of a full church with even chairs put up outside the church for believers.

The special mass was also attended by Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture; Hon. Murielle Marie, the elected member of the National Assembly for the Au Cap Constituency; Benjamine Rose, his PS for Culture; the District Administrator of the Au Cap District; and members of the Festival Kreol Organizing Committee.

Rev. Fr. Alcindor spoke about the pride that is today displayed by the Seychellois when they say they are Creoles. Fr. Alcindor said in his sermon that this was not always the same.

Hymns and lectures taken from the Bible had all been translated into Creole for the special mass. The PS for Culture, Ms. Rose, said when she addressed the gathered congregation that the Au Cap administration and Rev. Fr. Alcindor needed to be congratulated for their support to increase visibility of the Creole language. She also asked everyone to live their Creole culture 365 days of the year and not just during the Festival Kreol. This same message was re-echoed by the Catholic priest.

Minister Alain St.Ange said to the gathered press as he left the Au Cap Church that he felt encouraged by the Sermon of Rev Fr. Alcindor. “He re-echoed the messages we at the Ministry of Tourism and Culture were putting across. We salute the Rev. Fr. for his unconditional support for the benefit of Seychelles," said Minister St.Ange.
