Abu Dhabi: new senior priest

Archbishop Michael is pleased to announce a new senior priest to serve St Andrew Abu Dhabi with St Thomas Al ‘Ain in the United Arab Emirates.

She is the Reverend Christine Trainor, currently Associate Rector of St Stephen’s, Belvedere, in the Diocese of California. Christine has served in a variety of parishes and roles since her ordination in the Diocese of Connecticut in 1996, including seven years as priest in charge of another church in the San Francisco area, three years as Canon for Cathedral Life at Grace Cathedral, San Francisco, and a period on the staff of St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Dates for her arrival in the UAE and her licensing will be announced in due course.

Please pray for Christine and for the people of St Stephen’s as well as the parish of Abu Dhabi and all associated with St Andrew’s and St Thomas’s.
