‘Gangs Doing Better at Recruitment than the Church’ – Archbishop


The Apostolic Administrator of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Mandeville, Archbishop Charles Dufour, says gangs are doing a better job of recruiting people than the church.

The Archbishop says the church should be more proactive in getting new members. He says Jamaicans are drifting away from spiritual values.

Archbishop Dufour says the Roman Catholic church makes up about two percent of the country’s population.

In addition to many members of the church migrating, the archbishop says the Roman Catholic church is having a problem recruiting new people.

In fact, he says criminals often times are better recruiters.
