Roman Catholic Archbishop, Jason Gordon, has been officially bestowed with the Pallium by the Vatican's Ambassador during a Mass at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Port of Spain.

The Pallium is bestowed by the Pope on Archbishops and Bishops having metropolitan jurisdiction, as a symbol of their participation in papal authority.

The white woollen strip is worn around the neck and symbolises the bond between an Archbishop and his Pope.

Since the 9th century, an Archbishop cannot exercise his metropolitan jurisdiction until he has received the Pallium from the Pope.

Archbishop Gordon is the Metropolitan Archbishop for the Ecclesiastical Province of Port of Spain, which includes Guyana, Suriname, the Netherland Antilles, and Barbados.

The Apostolic Nuncio said the Pallium is a source of Godly unity.
