We warmly congratulate the Revd Dr Robin Gibbons, who has been chosen as one of twelve new honorary Canons at Oxford’s Christ Church Cathedral. The new canons were commissioned during an Evensong at the Cathedral on Saturday, January 23rd. Canons are selected because of their work within the Diocese of Oxford and the wider church. Dr. Gibbons, Alexander Schmemann Professor of Eastern Christianity at the GTF is also a member of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Oxford. He is Pastoral Director of the Oxford Theology Summer School and the Director of the Department for Continuing Education’s flagship OUSSA Summer School. He is also the Department’s Director of Studies for Theology and Religion and a Departmental Lecturer. He is now a member of Regents Park College, Oxford University, where he is a leading member of the Centre for Christianity and Culture. He is Assistant Pastor for the Greek Catholic Melkite Church in London and Great Britain but also helps in looking after Eastern Catholic members of Oxford University as well as being one of the Ecumenical Partners in the Benefice of Steeple Aston, North Aston and Tackley in the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. He is the first Catholic priest to be honored in the Cathedral since the Reformation!
