Did you know? (Sunday, April 14, 2024)

Bishop Enos Nuttall was one of our early bishops (1884-1916). He was a significant figure in Jamaican history, particularly known for his contributions to education, social welfare, and religious leadership. He established St. Peter’s College, to train local clergy for missions in Jamaica and overseas. Under his administration, there was a shift towards indigenization of clergy, including the employment of black clergy and catechists. Bishop Nuttall also played a key role in expanding the Church’s involvement in education, overseeing the establishment of numerous schools such as St. Hilda’s Diocesan High School and St. Hugh’s High School for Girls. Additionally, he chaired the Jamaica Schools Commission and was instrumental in the development of teacher training institutions like Mico Training College (now Mico University College) and Shortwood Teachers’ College.
