Roman Catholic Archbishop Jason Gordon is in quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19.
A news release from Catholic Media Services Ltd said the positive result came after Gordon began experiencing flu-like symptoms on Thursday.
In Gordon’s absence, Vicar-General Martin Sirju will be conducting Mass and managing matters related to the archdiocese.
Last Sunday, Archbishop Gordon, who is also vice-president of the Antilles Episcopal Conference (AEC), was in St Lucia for the installation of the new Metropolitan Archbishop of Castries, Gabriel Malzaire.
Mass at the Archbishop’s Chapel on Queen’s Park West, Port of Spain, will resume on May 3.
