PR – In an historic gesture, Anglican Archdeacon Michael Marshall presented the church’s parish booklet which contains a declaration of the community’s assets and liabilities to Chairperson of the Integrity Commission A. Anande Trotman (Lady) Joseph at the Church Service on Sunday 4th December, 2022, to mark the beginning of the observance of International Anti-Corruption Day celebrations.
“I want to present [to] you this morning, a copy of our general parish booklet which will have within it a declaration of assets and liabilities of the parish. There will be a report from every group [and] organization that function within this church and parish,” Archdeacon Marshall said.
At the service, which was attended by over 12 Commission members and stakeholders, Archdeacon Marshall, commended the Office of the Integrity Commission for its work which he likened to that of a priest, “in the confessional with parishioners and people; with the many stories…related to me as priest, that I’ll take to the grave.”
Lady Joseph, thanked Archdeacon Marshall and the church, though not a public sector entity, for their example in choosing to publicly and transparently share their report with the Commission.
