He consistently sends a yearly newsletter about what is happening in the diocese
.Every half year, I can expect to receive a newsletter in the mail from Bishop detailing events that are coming up and providing updates on the diocese’s initiatives. He also asks about them on the call, just to make sure you have received them. He ends the call with a reminder to keep in touch and call if you ever need anything. [spacer height=”20px”]
He calls about twice a year, Christmas and another random occasion
His calls are usually 2 minutes in length, offering a brief about about himself and the diocese and then asking about you and your family. The mere fact that he calls is significant and makes you feel special.[spacer height=”20px”]

He makes everyone feel extra special and like he only sees them
Every person who I have ever spoken to about Bishop Charles has expressed a feeling of friendship with him. I attribute this to the fact that he makes everyone he encounters feel like they are his only friend and the only person he sees. He pays such careful attention to you that you have no choice but to feel special.[spacer height=”20px”]
He is amazingly pleasant and positive in every interaction
My every encounter with Bishop is positive. On occasions when he was not feeling in the best of health, he was accepting and optimistic. His very demeanor discouraged me from complaining or being negative. [spacer height=”20px”]
He is a connector.
When I just returned to Jamaica, he connected me with an agency to find me a job and after when I decided practice was the way to go, he connected me with another organization to find office furniture. One of his superpowers is connecting the right people, a skill he has cultivated over the years. [spacer height=”20px”][spacer height=”20px”]
