The next parish priest of Christ Church Jebel Ali in the Emirate of Dubai is to be the Reverend James Young.
Fr Jim currently serves at St Thomas Chesapeake in the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia. He has previously ministered across the USA in Louisiana, Texas, California and Oregon as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia, together with a period as Episcopal chaplain of Stanford University.
Pray for Jim and his wife Sheryl, who expect to arrive in the Gulf in the early autumn. Bishop Michael will formally license him at Christ church on Friday 15 November 2019.
