At the consecration of Msgr Gordon Anthony Pantin as the eighth Archbishop of Port of Spain March 19, 1968, the Feast of St Joseph, homilist and personal friend Fr Mark Connolly OP said he had many “advantages” in his favour: “You are well-known, loved and respected by us all”.

These descriptions still resonate as the Archdiocese of Port of Spain celebrates the 50th anniversary of the ordination to the episcopate of the late archbishop, 5 p.m. tomorrow at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

It will be the first time the archdiocese is celebrating the anniversary of episcopal ordination of a deceased archbishop. Archbishop Pantin was the first T&T national to be elevated archbishop in his own Cathedral, and the youngest at 38 years.
