The Folk Research Centre has been renamed after its founder.

The exercise took place this week to mark the 70th birthday of Msgr. Patrick Anthony.

The occasion was a cultural evening held at the FRC in honour of the national cultural hero, holder of the Saint Lucia Cross and Saint Lucian priest whose work has transformed the cultural and religious landscape for more than 40 years.

Tributes were paid to Msgr. Anthony by the Minister for Culture Fortuna Belrose who presented him with a plaque donated jointly by her ministry, Mr. Embert Charles, Mr. Augustus Justin, Dr. Joyceline Fletcher and the Governor General.

The plate carrying the new name of the Msgr. Patrick Anthony Folk Research Centre was unveiled by the Governor General Dame Pearlette Louisy.

Other presentations made to Msgr. Anthony included the manuscript of a book titled ‘The Road to Mount Pleasant: a handbook of Saint Lucian Culture” compiled and edited by John Robert Lee and Embert Charles.

The FRC will launch the book in October during Creole Heritage Month.
