Mgr Jean-Michaël Durhône Reminds Us Of The Times Of Confinement, No Tourists, No Planes

Must Read

Under the presidency of Mgr Jean-Michaël Durhône, the annual tourism mass took place on Wednesday September 27 at 1pm on Sainte-Croix. A mass that mobilized all those involved in the tourism industry in Mauritius in a spirit of solidarity. This year’s theme was “Ouver laport to leker – vine vibe ar nou”. Father Philippe Goupille and members of the Diocesan Tourism Commission (CDT) brought together the large Mauritian tourism family at the Church of Ste Croix. The aim is to create opportunities for members of the local community, whether neighbors or fellow citizens, to promote inclusive, sharing-based tourism.

This is the 35th edition of the celebration. Father Phillippe Goupille, chaplain of the Diocesan Tourism Commission, welcomed the founding members and distinguished guests, including the Acting President of the Republic, Eddy Boissézon, and the Bishop of the Anglican Church of Mauritius, Sténio André.

In his homily, Mgr Jean-Michaël Durhône, Bishop of Port-Louis, reminded us how the country lived through this difficult and painful moment of the Covid, where we were confined and life had come to a standstill. Before 2020, we took everything for granted, but we never thought that tourism would come to a halt, with no planes and empty hotels. This made us realize that everything in life is never taken for granted, nothing in life is certain… Thanks be to God for giving us the strength to move forward. The Lord gives us the grace to move forward. Mgr Jean-Michaël Durhône concluded by asking the audience to clap their hands for the Mauritians’ capacity for hope, for bouncing back. And perhaps happier days ahead.
