The past 25 years of ministry have seen many successes for Archdeacon Cartwright ,and his work can been seen in a number of new and renovated buildings throughout the Diocese.
In 1980, at the tender age of 22 years, Archdeacon Cartwright graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree with honours from Codrington College, and returned home to begin his work in the Church of God. Because he was too young for ordination, he was subsequently sent to Grand Bahama to take up a post at the Freeport Anglican High School, while assisting the late Canon Eric Sam in starting the Church of the Ascension in Lucaya, Grand Bahama.
During this time, he entered studies at the University of Miami reading for a Master's Degree in Education Administration. He graduated in May 1982.
