Clergy chapter of Catalunya, the Balearic Islands and Madrid


In our diocese clergy can often feel isolated in their ministry; it is unlikely that there will be another Anglican priest nearby. In the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar, clergy clusters or regional chapters are encouraged to meet for mutual support and fellowship, and to help break down the sense of isolation.

Area Dean Fr David Waller recently invited me to spend time with the chapter from Catalunya, the Balearic Islands and Madrid. We met at the Monasterio de Santa Lucia, Mancor de la Vall, high on a hill in Mallorca.


It was a time to share experiences, challenges, joys and vision. It was a privilege to pray together and to celebrate the eucharist in the chapel which dates from 1275. The food and wine were also good!
