Social Share

Archdeacon Adams has called on Anglicans to offer financial support to education to give the best to the nation’s young people.

Speaking at a special service in Bequia to mark Bishop’s College Sunday he said: “There is no greater joy in life but to look upon the faces of young people when they are trying to get an education so that they can offer leadership to their community and country.”

The principal, students and staff of the Bishop’s College Kingstown travelled to Bequia last Sunday March 29 for the occasion. They worshipped at the Saint Mary’s Anglican Church – Port Elizabeth where Archdeacon Adams was the main celebrant. {{more}}

According to Archdeacon Sylvanus Regisford of the St. George’s Cathedral in Kingstown, having recognized that the school had begun diverting from its roots and becoming more like a secular institution, in 2001, the church decided to set aside one Sunday where the faculty and students would participate in divine worship, ensuring that the school continues to reflect the Anglican ethos.

He said that Bishops College Sunday was established to garner financial support from members to assist with the maintenance and of operation of the school.

Archdeacon Adams noted that if it weren’t for the Bishop’s College Kingstown, the future of many of this country’s bright young men and women would be very different therefore, all Anglicans must commit themselves to the efforts and work of the school.

Bishop’s College Kingstown is one of two secondary institutions in St. Vincent and the Grenadines which was founded and operated by the Anglican Community. The other was the Bishop’s College Georgetown, now renamed the Georgetown Secondary School.

The Bishop’s College Kingstown was founded in 1964 and has a population of 325 students.
