Assistant Priests in Midi Pyrénées & Aude: The Revds June Hutchinson and Tony Jewiss


At the French Archdeaconry Synod last week, the Revd Tony Jewiss was licensed as assistant priest (NSM) in the chaplaincy of Midi Pyrénées & Aude. Fr Jewiss should feel at home in our international diocese, as he was born in England, grew up in New Zealand, and has served as a priest in the dioceses of Los Angeles and Long Island in the USA. He has been a bishop's chaplain, and has also worked in the central office of the Episcopal Church in New York.

At the same service Bishop Geoffrey licensed the Revd June Hutchinson as assistant priest in the parish, signifying that she has successfully completed her years of post ordination training and now moves on from being an assistant curate.

The parish of Midi Pyrénées & Aude covers an area twice the size of Wales and has 6 congregations. At the time of writing I am happy to be able to say that a new chaplain has been chosen and is presently in the final stages of appointment. There will be an announcement soon. The chaplain will lead the ministry team which includes Tony and June as well as several licensed readers.

We welcome Fr Tony to our diocese and congratulate June on her new position in the parish. They are pictured above.
