Tomorrow, Ash Wednesday, we will have a special guest preacher at morning Eucharist. The Rt. Rev. Michael Lewis is the bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf and is visiting VTS along with the Ven. William Schwartz. The Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf is a fascinating and diverse context in which to minister covering Cyprus, Bahrain, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.
I am grateful to our Center for Anglican Communion Studies, who have partnered with the Episcopal Church’s Global Partnerships office to bring Bishop Lewis and Archdeacon Schwartz here as they continue to focus attention on the Anglican Communion in the Middle East.
The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D. Dean and President
