Accipe Spiritum Sanctum (Receive the Holy Spirit), pronounces the Principal Consecrator Richard Cardinal Cushing, Archbishop of Boston, as he touches both hands to the head of Bishop Samuel Emmanuel Carter, consecrating the Jamaica-born priest Auxiliary Roman Catholic Bishop of Kingston with the Titular See of Cenculiana at the Holy Trinity Cathedral.

Bishop Carter, age 47, was ordained a priest in 1954 after 10 years of studies at Shadow Brook seminary and Weston Massachusetts.

Besides being auxiliary bishop he will now be pastor of the Parish of Holy Cross at Half-Way Tree.
