Matthew 23: 11The greatest among you will be your servant. 12For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
RICHARD RAWLE - Our first Bishop, the Reverand Richard Rawle M.A., Cambridge, was consecrated Bishop of Trinidad in Lichfield Cathedral, England, on St. Peter's Day, 1872. He had had a most outstanding record as a scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge University, having taken first class Honours in Mathematics and Classics. He had been also a Fellow of Trinity and had had experience as a Parish Priest, and above all it was an advantage he was well acquainted with the West Indies as a very successful Principal of Codrington College, Barbados. From here his influence on matters educational and ecclesiastical had been Caribbean wide. He had also a great flair for building things great and small. His was the vision of the Rio Pongas Mission for an Africa christianised and redeemed by West Indians. He performed his duties with unfailing energy and devotion and was for years his own Dean. He was indefatigable in his missionary zeal in establishing churches and chapels, schools and other church institutions and organisations throughout the length and breadth of a Trinidad not at all the Trinidad of today. Bishop Rawle at the ripe age of 76 years left Trinidad for further service to the Church as Principal of Codrington College for a second time; but he died the same year. He lived and died renowned for his piety, and rightly called the Saintly Rawle.

THOMAS HAYES - Within three months of Bishop Rawle's retirement from Trinidad, the Reverand Thomas Hayes, M.A., was consecrated in Westminister Abbey as Bishop of Trinidad on the 25th of March, 1889. He arrived in Port of Spain on the 17th May, 1889, and four days after was enthroned and installed in his cathedral. Tough not of the stature of his predecessor, Bishop Hayes was a very distinguished bishop, a man of impressive personality, a great preacher and orator. He showed great faith in the ability of West Indies to attain to the highest standards of citizenship.And so he freely gave his patronage to Literary and Debating Societies and willingly sponsored other Cultural organisations. Among other works to his credit are the building and consecration of the Church of St. Maragret of Antioch; St. Mary Magdalene of Manzanilla; St. Oswald at Caroni; and St. Aidan's Arouca. He died at Liverpool, England, on the 26th January, 1904. There are many Anglicans yet alive who remember and revere the memory of this charming Bishop, a Master of pulpitoratory, and a Prince of Preachers. His successor was Bishop Welch.

JOHN FRANCIS WELSH - The Reverand John Francis Welsh, M.A., (Oxon,) was consecrated Bishop of Trinidad at St Paul's Cathedral on the 28th October 1904. Bishop Welsh was a graduate of Christ Church, Oxford, the doyen of colleges of Oxford University and had been Principal of St. Boniface Theological College, Warminister. His immediate succesor was the Reverend Arthur Anstey, M.A. Bishop Welsh came to Trinidad in gloomy days. This had been the year before the water Riots, and the economic prospects of the colony were somewhat unfavorable. He laboured to promote Religious Instruction in our schools and he has to his credit the building and consecration (despite the unfavourable economy) of several churches; among them St. Augustine, La Brea; st. Edward the Martyr at Tabaquite; St. John's San Juan; St Mark's, Guapo, and an Extension of the church of the good Shepherd, Tunapuna. Also St. Hilda, Todd's Road; a new church of St. Chad, Tucker's Valley and the laying of the corner stone of a new Church of St. Sylvan, Carapichaima.

FABIAN ELLIOTT MENTEATH JACKSON - After Anstey left, the See remained vacant until the arrival of Bishop Fabian Elliott Menteath Jackson in June, 1946. The Bishop was heir presumptive to a Scotch Earldom and a product of Westminister Public School and London University. He was accompanied by a very capable and promising domestic chaplain, the Reverand Anthony P. Tremlette, M.A., of King's College, Cambridge. Bishop Jackson showed administrative ability abd capacity for leadership, and within 6 months or so of installation was able to raise a quarter of a million dollars for church work. Unfortunately his efficiency was greatly impaired by ill-health; the tropics did not agree with him. His contribution was in the direction of the enrichment of our Liturgy, raising it from Low to High Church. Bishop Jackson returned late in 1949 to England where he now lives in retirement as an invalid.

DOUGLAS JOHN WILSON - Early in 1950 by direct vote Synod elected Bishop Douglas John Wilson, M.A., Cambridge, Bishop of Trinidad. He arrived soon after his election, and sought to carry out the liturgical policy of Bishop Jackson. After the resignation of Dean Ashworth, ever to be remembered as our High Church Dean, Bishop Wilson appointed as Dean the Reverend Mr. Vaughan, M.A. (Oxon.), later Bishop of British Honduras. They formulated plans for a Church of England High School for boys in Trinidad, thus resurrecting something Bishop Anstey had started here in All Saints' Memorial Hall in September, 1937, under Mr. Thompson, B.H., now Dr. Thompson, M.D. Bishop Wilson left Trinidad before the laying of the then foundation stone of the College at Moka, Maraval, but after a start had been made at the Deanery on Cathedral premises.

FRANK NOEL CHAMBERLAIN - Bishop Wilson left in 1956 for England where he is on the staff of the Cathedral of Bath and Wells. An appointing Committee in England selected as his successor the Venerable Frank Noel Chamberlain, O.B.E., M.A., A.K.C., Archdeacon of the Fleet. He was both consecrated and enthoned in Trinidad in August, 1956. On assumption of office he made it plain that he came to be a mere Caretaker of the Diocese for no more than 4 - 5 years - not a day more. His Lordship kept his word; and faithfully administered affairs despite an acute shortage of clergy and ordinals. He officiated at the laying of the foundation stone of Trinity College, Moka, Maraval, in 1960.

BISHOP HUGHES - On the retirement in July, 1961 of Bishop Chamberlain, Synod invited Archbishop Hughes in October, 1961 to be the next Bishop of Trinidad. Archbishop Hughes had had a record of being an outstanding Colonial Bishop of advanced liberal views. Educated at Leeds University and Mirfield Theological College, Bishop Hughes had been a popular Dean and Rector of St. George's Cathedral, Georgetown, Demarara. In May, 1944, he was consecrated Bishop of British Honduras. From 1945 - 1951 he was Bishop of Barbados, then Bishop of Matabeleland and Archbishop of Central Africa 1957 - 1961. Bishop Hughes arrived in 1962, and the outstanding event of his episcopacy was the visit of Dr. Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury. The Archbishop was accompanied by Mrs. Ramsey and his domestic chaplain. This was the first time an Archbishop of Canterbury had visited the West Indies. His Grace addressed an ecumenical meeting in the Queen's Park Savannah which (attended by thousands) was a big success. The work and policy of Bishop Hughes, aided by his very active consort, Mrs. Maude Hughes, are recent and well known to us all.

CLIVE ORMINSTON ABDULAH - Bishop Clive Orminston Abdulah B.A., S.T.M., F.C.P., D.MIN., D.D, was the first Native to be unanimously elected and Consecrated as Bishop of Trinidad & Tobago. This was at a most difficult time in our nation – the aftermath of the Black Power disturbances and a State of Emergency. His consecration on September 29, 1970 was very welcome, and one may still be able to recall that propitious day. A graduate of Queen’s Royal College, Port of Spain, Abdulah then went on to the University of Pennsylvania, where he became the first Black President of the Canterbury Club, and graduated with a B.A in 1950. His thirst for knowledge did not end there, for he later went on to Trinity College, Toronto to obtain his Bachelor’s Degree in Theology. It is said that “The foundation of every state is the education of its youth,” and Bishop Abdulah clearly illustrates this. He continued on, graduating with a Master's Degree in Theology in 1965, and the degree of Doctor in Ministry in 1993 from the Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, USA. Bishop Abdulah’s career spans all of forty-nine years and counting, beginning with his ordination as deacon in Trinity College, Toronto for the Diocese of Jamaica, May 17, 1953. One year later, June 27, 1954, he was ordained Priest in the Parish Church of Kingston, Jamaica. While still in Jamaica, he served as Rector of Highgate, Rural Dean of St. Mary (1957-66), and Stony Hill (1966-70).

RAWLE ERNEST DOUGLIN - The Right Reverend Rawle Ernest Douglin, descendant of descendant of Reverend P.H. Douglin (deceased), was ordained to the priesthood on March 13th 1960. He served at the parishes of St. Stephen’s, Princes Town (1963), The Good Shepherd, Tunapuna (1967) and All Saints’ Church, Newtown (1971). Father Douglin was made Canon in 1969, and became Dean and Rector of the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity in 1973, succeeding Dean A.T.P. Harrison. He also served as teacher to the Richmond Street Boys’ Anglican School (Christus Rex). Dean Douglin succeeded to Bishopric of Trinidad and Tobago following the retirement of Bishop Clive Abdulah and his election as Coadjutor Bishop. He was consecrated as Bishop on September 29, 1992 and was later enthroned as Diocesan Bishop one year to that date. Bishop Douglin enjoyed a brilliant episcopacy, and his ability and influence has been felt and recognized throughout the diocese. He now serves as Priest in various parishes in the Diego Martin and Carenage area, and at the Missions to Seamen, Wrightson Road, Port of Spain.

CALVIN W. BESS - The Very Reverend Calvin W. Bess was made a Deacon in the Anglican Church on December 21, 1965, and was ordained Priest at the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity in 1966. Father Bess served as the Assistant Curate of St. Andrew's Parish in Scarborough, Tobago from 1966-1968, after which he went on to the Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity in the same capacity until 1969. After his stint at the Cathedral, he returned to Tobago as the Priest in Charge of St. Patrick's Church in Mt. Pleasant. In 1972, Father Bess made his way back to Trinidad to become the Assistant to the Rector at St. Paul's Church in San Fernando until 1977. He then moved over to the Holy Cross Church in Marabella where he remained as the Priest in Charge for 23 years. During his tenure at Holy Cross, he was appointed to the Cathedral Chapter in the Stall of St. Patrick (1995).
It is often said that God has two dwellings, one in heaven and the other in a meek and thankful heart. We see this so evident in Bishop Bess. Thankful for the opportunity to serve both God and the Church in all humility, Canon Bess was exalted to the Bishopric when he was elected Coadjutor Bishop of Trinidad and Tobago on October 31, 2000; succeeding Bishop Rawle Douglin. He was Enthroned on April 21, 2001 and Consecrated on December 21, 2002.
