New Bishop for New Guinea Islands

The latest from ACPNG is that Fr Reginald Makele has been elected as the next Bishop of New Guinea Islands Diocese. Fr Reginald Makele, 51, is from Sag Sag in the Cape Gloucester area of West New Britain. He is married to Cathlyn – also from West New Britain – and they have three children, Abel, Ruth and Junior Reg. He has spent much of his ministry in Port Moresby, including Gerehu and Morata parishes, and as Bishop’s Chaplain and Dean of the Cathedral. He is currently the Anglican Chaplain to the Police. A date for his consecration has yet to be announced, meanwhile PNGCP sends our congratulations, prayers and good wishes to the Makele family and all in NGI Diocese.
