Anglican Bishop, the Right Reverend Claude Berkley says the unabated crime and violence and homicide in society is traumatizing the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

Speaking at a Eucharistic service at the St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Scarborough to mark the opening of the 2014 Synod of the Anglican Church of the Dioceses of Trinidad and Tobago, Bishop Berkley stated that, “Our moral and ethics have become confused and there is unsettling uncertainty about what is right and what is wrong,”

“We are not in a good place, given our rich offering of human, physical and other resources,” said Bishop Berkley, who grew up in Pembroke.
