Golden anniversary for Anglican Bishop Clive

Born in Woodbrook, Port of Spain in 1927, Clive Orminston Abdulah was ordained an Anglican priest on June 27, 1954 and spent the first 16 years of his ministry in Jamaica. On Tuesday September 29, 1970, he was consecrated as Bishop in the Diocese of Trinidad & Tobago, and thereby became the first native Bishop of the Diocese.

He was a founding member of the Inter Religious Organization of Trinidad & Tobago, served on the University Council of the University of the West Indies and was the first West Indian Bishop to serve on the Board of Directors of the Anglican Centre in Rome.

He retired as Bishop in 1993 but continued to serve the Diocese as an Assistant Bishop.
