The Rt Revd Roger Jaomalaza FH Chung Po Chuen is the third Bishop of Antsiranana Diocese, Madagascar (2003 – 2010).
After his Secondary Education he took a job as Junior Manager for 7 years in the Textiles Factory at Floreal Knitwear. In 1976 he took part time Theological studies with Canon Ghislain Emmanuel who later became the first Mauritian Bishop. In 1980 he joined full time Theological Studies as Bishop Trevor Huddleston reopened St Paul’s College. After studying Theology in Perth Australia and obtaining a Clinical Pastoral Education Diploma , he was ordained to the priesthood in 1983 and then served as Rector at St Paul’s church, Plaine Verte for 20 years. He also served interim Rector at St James Cathedral for 5 years, St Thomas for 3 years, St Andrew’s for 3 years and various ministries and built Immanuel Hall.
In 1993 he obtained a Post Graduate Diploma in Mission Studies with Selly Oak and Birmingham University. He spearheaded Mission & Evangelism in the Diocese and reopened St Mark’s Poudre d’ Or and St Michael’s St Pierre Moka for worship. He served as the Anglican Communion ACC representative for the Province. After serving as Archdeacon of Mauritius he was nominated Bishop of Antsiranana Madagascar in 2003. He had an Episcopate of 7 years and built the New St Matthew’s Cathedral in Antsiranana. After a severe stroke he resigned as Bishop in 2010 and providentially now again ministers in Mauritius after a miraculous healing and rehabilitation.
He is married to Alice and has 2 sons. (Personal Vision 2017) I have been a Charismatic Renewal Minister and relentlessly involved in Mission, Evangelisation and Church Growth. In this final lap of my Severe Stroked miraculous healing ministry, I join with Bishop Ian’s vision of Enlarging His Tent as I offer my zeal, expertise and experience to the Diocese. I also hope to help and dynamise the Vision of the Anglican CARE Retreat Centre Project at Poudre d’Or St Mark’s Church and seeing it Fulfilled.
