    • Priest celebrates 66th anniversary
      BY ANGELA PIDDUCK Sunday, August 3 2008

      Archdeacon Emeritus Stephen Kenneth Cumberbatch chats with a church member....

      History was written in the annals of the Anglican Church of the Diocese of Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday June 29, 2008, when Archdeacon Emeritus Stephen Kenneth Cumberbatch, who will be 99 years old in September, celebrated the 66th anniversary of his Ordination to the priesthood with a con-celebrated Eucharist at All Saints Anglican Church, the parish in which he grew up.

      Chief celebrant was The Right Reverend Clive Abdulah, retired Bishop of the Diocese. Homilist, Canon Claude Berkley, rector of All Saints, expressed joy at being part of, and sharing in “this memorable and historic occasion for this son of the soil, son of the church and son of the nation.

      A reserved man of dignity which is a rare gift...and a worthy priest.” Other celebrants included Reverends Marva Kellman, Titus Ackbarali, Dr Knolly Clarke and Pam Greaves.

      Cumberbatch was 30 years old in 1939, when he responded to God’s call and entered Codrington Theological College in Barbados.

      Two years later, on August 6, 1941, he was ordained to the Diaconate and remained in Barbados until his Ordination to the Priesthood by Bishop Hand, in Antigua, on June 29, 1942 and for six years served in that island and in Belize.

      In 1948, Father Cumberbatch came home and was Rector of St Patrick’s parish in Tobago for six years; then of St James the Just (Sangre Grande) for four years; and St Mary’s (Tacarigua) for ten years. By the time the priest moved to St Paul’s (San Fernando) in 1968, he had been installed as a Canon in the Stall of St Boniface in the Cathedral Chapter of the Holy Trinity Church in 1965.

      And while serving as Rector of St Paul’s, the Canon received the appointment as Archdeacon of the Diocese of Trinidad and Tobago, in 1969. In 1971 he became rector of St Crispin’s (Woodbrook) and then of Christ Church (Cascade).

      From 1979 until he fully retired, the Archdeacon assisted at The Holy Trinity Cathedral, Church of the Epiphany in Morvant, returned to Christ Church and St Crispin’s, and finally at St Margaret’s Belmont.

      The Archdeacon Emeritus has been held in high esteem as a Spiritual Director and Retreat Conductor, and while many laity and fellow clergy have been blessed through his counsel, one man who was moved to follow in his footsteps is the Venerable Hollis Peter Lynch, a former Archdeacon of Montego Bay, now serving in the Cayman Islands.

      The Archdeacon Emeritus, his wife Sybil (nee Rouse), children Jonathan, David and Christine, and their respective families “thank God for the gift of this man whose life is a shining example of the unique joy of serving a Risen Lord and Saviour, and ask for God’s continued blessings upon Stephen Kenneth as he approaches the anniversary of his 100th birthday in September 2009.”

      ARCHDEACON Emeritus Stephen Kenneth Cumberbatch, who recently celebrated his 100th birthday, was honoured by Mayor of Port-of-Spain, Murchison Brown in a simple ceremony at City Hall, Knox Street, Port-of- Spain, attended by a small gathering of local government officials, and family members.
      Cumberbatch, who served as a priest for 67 years, celebrated his 100th birthday on September 17.

      Cumberbatch said he was delighted to be honoured and he was blessed to be among family and good friends.

      “I am happy to be among all of you and I appreciate this honour,” he said, after receiving a plaque from Mayor Brown, in recognition of his 67th anniversary of priestly ordination and in celebration of his 100th birthday.

      Cumberbatch was 30 years old in 1939, when he responded to God’s call and entered Codrington Theological College in Barbados.
