Confirmations celebrated in L'Ampolla, Costa Azahar


St Christopher's parish, Costa Azahar, is a relatively new pastoral area in the Diocese. Services are held in three centres: Alcossebre, Vinaros, and L'Ampolla. Three drop-in centres are run by the parish which serve both as fund-raising sources but more importantly, provide the Church with a public window and presence in the communities, as it seeks to serve English speaking Christians in the Spanish coastal area between Valencia and Barcelona.

Candidates for confirmation being watched over by angels!
I recently visited L'Ampolla to celebrate the sacrament of confirmation with members of the parish. They were joined by candidates and their clergy from St George's Barcelona. It was a joyous occasion, which included a paella feast - standard fare in this ancient fishing port.



The parish website is here.

The parish is praying earnestly for the appointment of its next priest-in-charge, who will be privileged to serve an energetic and committed community.
