Bajan priest outraged at funeral attire

(Barbados Nation) Not in my church!

Rector of the St Lucy’s Parish Church, Reverend Curtis Goodridge, is putting a ban on funerals with “mourning colours optional” requests.

This, after he was outraged by the provocative and utterly inappropriate dress by some young people at a funeral on Tuesday.

“Mourning colours optional is just giving young people leeway to wear what they want, where they want and how they want. If there is a request for mourning colours optional, the funeral will have to go somewhere else.

“It is not for St Lucy’s Church. I will be speaking to funeral directors, and any time that is mentioned they will have to tell the families, ‘Not St Lucy’s Church’,” Goodridge told the WEEKEND NATION yesterday.
