The Bishop in Cyprus and the Gulf, the Rt Revd Michael Lewis, is pleased to announce the appointment of the Revd Christopher Howitz as Anglican Chaplain in Oman. He will serve as co-chaplain within the PCO (Protestant Church in Oman), an ecumenical partnership with the RCA (Reformed Church of America).
Chris was ordained and has always served in the Diocese of Manchester and for the past six years has ministered as priest in charge of St Clement Higher Openshaw, an inner-urban parish where the congregation has a significant international background. He expects to move to Oman in January 2012 and to be licensed in Muscat by the bishop on a date to be confirmed.
Please pray for Chris, for Nicole his wife, and for Joshua their infant son. Remember also the Revd Dr Barry Dawson, who begins ministry as the new RCA co-chaplain at this time, and for all who live, work and worship in the Sultanate.
