Canon Hugh Broad: Area Dean of Gibraltar Archdeaconry

During the Candlemas Eucharist at the Gibraltar Archdeaconry Synod in Torrevieja, Spain, I commissioned the Revd Canon Hugh Broad as Area Dean of the Archdeaconry. It is the second term for Fr Hugh.

The Area Dean works closely with Archdeacon David Sutch in providing pastoral care and oversight of approximately 60 congregations in Spain (including the Balearic and Canary Islands), Portugal (including Madeira), Andorra, Gibraltar and Morocco. He also takes a lead role in the organising of the Archdeaconry synods. In addition to his responsibilities as Area Dean, Fr Hugh works closely with the Ministry Team of the Diocese, particularly in the selection process for candidates for reader ministry and in assisting the Director of Ordinands with certain aspects of vocations to ordained ministry. 

All this is done in addition to his parochial responsibilities. Fr Hugh is the priest-in-charge of the parish of Costa Almería and Costa Cálida based in Mojácar with daughter congregations in Costacabana, Roquetas and Albox. The parish website is here.

  1. Is this the same Fr. Hugh Broad that was once apart of St. Peter's Church in Tilton on the Hill?
