The funeral for St Lucian painter the Honourable Sir Dunstan St. Omer was held today at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Castries, St. Lucia, magnificently decorated with murals by St. Omer himself.

The “Celebration of the Life of National Cultural Hero” St. Omer featured, among many tributes, an eulogy by McDonald Dixon and a poetic tribute by his lifelong friend Derek Walcott.

St Lucian poet John Robert Lee was kind enough to provide his local and international admirers with a pdf copy of the 32-page Program for the service, which you can access by clicking here.
