On Sunday, August 21, 2016 Lions and Leos in Zone 3B, Saint Lucia – (Castries, Vieux Fort Lions, Soufriere Piton Lions, Gros Islet Lions, Micoud Lions, Leo Club of Castries and the Hewanorra Plains Leo) celebrated mass at the St Joseph the Worker Church Roman Catholic Church in Gros Islet. The church service was held to mark the commencement of our 49th Lionistic year (July 2016 – June 2017). It was agreed that this be done as a joint activity instead of each club organizing and celebrating a separate services. The service was followed by a Brunch which allowed the Lions and Leos to fellowship in a cordial atmosphere.
