New Dean for Bahrain

Bishop Michael is very pleased to announce that the next Dean of St Christopher’s Cathedral, Manama, Bahrain, one of the two co-equal cathedrals of the Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf, is to be the Venerable Dr Bill Schwartz OBE.

He will also continue to be Archdeacon in the Gulf, discharging his wider responsibilities and bringing to bear his wisdom and unrivalled experience in the region from this new location.

Please pray for Bill, his wife Edith, and the people of Bahrain as Bill prepares to start ministry there at the beginning of May. A formal celebration of his installation, led by the bishop, will take place at 6 pm on Saturday 1 June, to which all will be welcome.
