Barry Mason begins Reader Ministry in Costa del Sol West


Barry Mason (above) has been recently admitted to the office of reader and authorised for work in the parish of Costa del Sol West in Spain. We welcome Barry to the group of over 100 Readers which serve the congregations of our diocese.

There are a further nine persons in various stages of discernment or training for Reader Ministry across the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar (which of course, covers Gibraltar, Spain - mainland and islands, Portugal with Madeira, Andorra and Morocco).

Barry is pictured below with the Area Dean of Gibraltar, Canon Hugh Broad, who admitted him to the office of Reader. The chaplain of Costa del Sol West, the Revd Canon Dr Alan Maude is second from the right, and to the right of him is the Revd Maurice Horsey, Honorary Assistant priest.

The website of the parish, which has two centres of worship, San Pedro and Sotogrande, is here.
