SUFFRAGAN BISHOP DAVID HAMID’S BLOG
We want to share with you our Suffragan Bishop’s blog entry for November 2, 2020. After the cancellation of his visit to Lanzarote due to travel restrictions, he dedicated his daily post to share the news from our Parish, our work and our plans for the future. We look forward to welcoming Bishop David back to Lanzarote as soon as possible and give thanks for his ongoing support.
