Nassau, The Bahamas – I am deeply saddened to learn of the untimely passing of the Right Reverend Cornell Moss in a Miami on Saturday, 30th May 2015
Bahamians fondly remember the Venerable Cornell Jerome Moss who served the Anglican Diocese in The Bahamas with distinction, rising to the post of Archdeacon of Nassau and the Bahamas. Later, he was selected a Bishop by the House of Bishops of the Province of the West Indies when they met in conference from August 25-27 in 2009, succeeding the Right Rev. Randolph George who retired on December 31, 2008.
He presided over the Anglican Diocese of Guyana and Suriname until his death.
In addition to the great pride I as a Bahamian took in his role as a Bishop serving in Guyana, I appreciated his friendship and support for the progressive movement and cause and in supporting the work of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
I extend heartfelt condolences to his wife, his mother and the extended Anglican family both at home and abroad, especially in Guyana and the Ascension Anglican Parish in Freeport, Grand Bahama.
May his soul rest in peace.
