The Revd Marcus Ronchetti joins team at Holy Spirit Costa Blanca

The Reverend Q Marcus Ronchetti, formerly Vicar of Midhurst and Woolbeding in the diocese of Chichester, will begin his new work as Chaplain (Team Vicar) of the Anglican Church of the Holy Spirit, Costa Blanca, Spain on 1 June 2012. Fr Marcus joins Fr Peter Edwards, the Senior Chaplain of Costa Blanca, in serving the 8 congregations in this part of the Spanish Mediterranean. He will be licensed by the Area Dean, Canon Hugh Broad, at 12 noon on Thursday 7 June, the feast of Corpus Christi.

Holy Spirit, Costa Blanca, has the largest electoral roll of any parish in our diocese. The pastoral area covers over 7000 square kilometres. The parish website is here.

Fr Marcus replaces the Reverend Robin Carter, who retired on 30 April. 

We welcome Fr Marcus to our diocesan family.

  1. Fr Marcus has aspired to minister here for several years, during which time he has made a number of fruitful visits which have enabled him to get to know us better; and for him not to be a stranger for us on his arrival. As we know (and need to remember) sometimes in life the moment is not now, and we have to wait for the right and good things, in God's own time!

    We welcome Fr Marcus and Sandra with prayers and hopes for a fruitful period in all our lives; and equally for Fr Robin & Jenny in their retirement; with thanks for all they have been and done.
