The Bishop of Cyprus and the Gulf, Michael Lewis, has announced that the Archdeacon of the Gulf, Dr Bill Schwartz OBE, is to be the next Dean of St Christopher’s Anglican Cathedral in Manama, Bahrain. St Christopher’s is one of two equal-status cathedrals in the diocese, the other is St Paul’s Cathedral in Nicosia, Cyprus.
Dr Schwartz will combine his new role with his existing ministry as archdeacon, “bringing to bear his wisdom and unrivalled experience in the region from this new location”, Bishop Michael said.
“Please pray for Bill, his wife Edith, and the people of Bahrain as Bill prepares to start ministry there at the beginning of May.”
The new Dean will be installed on Saturday 1 June.
