Born and raised in Delaford, Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago, Rev. Fr. Steve Duncan received his theological formation at the Regional Seminary of St. John Vianney and the Ugandan Martyrs, Mt. St. Benedict, Trinidad. He holds a B. A. (Honours) Degree in Theology from the University of the West Indies.
On December 18, 2004, Fr. Steve was ordained a priest of the Archdiocese of Port-of- Spain. He is the first Catholic priest to be ordained in Tobago, and the second of two Catholic priests from Tobago. He is also the first Diocesan priest from Tobago.
