Holy Spirit Chaplaincy, Costa Blanca, celebrates 50 years

The chapel where the first services were held, 50 years ago

The Chaplaincy of the Holy Spirit Costa Blanca in Spain is among the largest in the Diocese in terms of numbers of congregations (8), the geograhical spread (about the size of Wales), the number of clergy who serve it (5) and the electoral roll. It is also celebrating its golden jubilee anniversary this year. 

On the weekend of Advent Sunday, several events marked this milestone, including a confirmation service, with 11 candidates, of all ages. A splendid festive Evensong was held in the church where the first services were held 50 years ago. 

Canon Marcus Ronchetti

Fr Marcus Ronchetti, the Senior Chaplain of Costa Blanca, recently became an honorary canon of our Cathedral, and will be installed in Gibraltar in January. His stall will be that of St James, who is, of course, the patron saint of Spain.
