Great to meet you!
I am Donald Dean Chambers, son of Mum and Dad, priest for 29 years. I was ordained a priest in the Archdiocese of Kingston, Jamaica. I currently reside in the Archdiocese of Port of Spain, Trinidad. For the last three years, I have held the position of General Secretary for the Antilles Episcopal Conference. I enjoy reading, writing and challenging persons with thoughts and sharings inspired by faith and scripture! I also encourage others to challenge me and my writing, so feel free to share your thoughts!
