This month’s Niagara Anglican is a joint effort of the incoming and outgoing of its two editors.
Since August 31 was Hollis Hiscock’s completion of his ministry as Editor and Rob Towler began as interim Editor on August 26th, it seemed divinely appropriate that they edit the October paper as one.
The Reverend Rob Towler, ordained in 1988, served several parishes in Huron Diocese and has extensive experience as a regular contributor to the Huron Church News (HCN).
He served on the HCN Board of Trustees for over 25 years, including five years as Chair.
Rob was a two-term member of the General Synod Communication and Information Resources Committee and the Anglican Journal sub-committee. When the Anglican Journal was separately incorporated, he became their first President, serving six years. Later, he was appointed chair of the Journal’s sub-committee for three years.
He has served the wider church at Provincial and General Synod on various committees, the Council of General Synod and two terms as Prolocutor of the Province of Ontario. In 2010 he was named a Canon of St. Paul’s Cathedral (London).
In addition to accepting the position of Interim Editor of the Niagara Anglican on a part-time limited term contract, Rob also accepted the part-time positions of Rector of St. John’s Winona and Rector of St. Alban’s Beamsville.
We wish Rob well in all the work to which he has been called and accepted.
