Meet Father Keith N. Cartwright
The Venerable Archdeacon Keith Nathaniel Cartwright was born in Nassau, New Providence, The Bahamas on Maundy Thursday 3rd April, 1958 to Catechist Raphael and Chlorine Cartwright. Archdeacon Cartwright is the eldest of the Cartwright’s three children. Archdeacon Cartwright was baptized and confirmed at St. Agnes Anglican Church. The Archdeacon recounts that he began serving around St. Agnes’ altar at the age of 6. Cartwright’s formal education began at St. John’s Preparatory School from 1964-1969, later matriculating to St. John’s College in 1969 where he graduated in 1976. While at St. John’s, Cartwright served as the school’s Head Boy.
Gospel : Mark 10:35-45
James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to Jesus and said to Him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we ask of you.” And He said to them, “What is it you want me todo for you?” And they said to Him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesus said to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” They replied, “We are able.” Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink, you will drink; and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be baptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” When the ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John. So Jesus called them and said to them, “You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you must be salve of all. For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and give His life a ransom for many.”
