Security for Lapeyrouse
By LARA PICKFORD-GORDON Wednesday, October 31 2012
EXTENDED hours and beefed-up security will be in place for Friday’s All Souls observance at the Lapeyrouse Cemetery, Port-of-Spain. The cemetery usually closes at 6 pm. However, Port-of- Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing said “longer than normal” hours were in effect last year, and would happen again this year. The Corporation was “duty bound” to provide security to ensure public safety He estimated that closing time would be about 8 pm..
All Souls Day is a feast in the Roman Catholic Church commemorating the deceased, and traditionally people spruce up the graves of loved ones, and light candles. In an interview yesterday Lee Sing said due to the religious nature of All Souls many people continued to maintain grave sites and light candles. He planned to light candles at Lapeyrouse for his late mother Pearl, and father Errol.
