Confirmation Service

Bishop Robert, the Bishop of Europe, came to Barcelona before the diocesan synod to take the Sunday service and to confirm any adults who wished to be confirmed. As we are ┬ánow part of St Goerge’s Barcelona, we were asked if any of our would like to be confirmed. So Janet Humphreys and John Pinnell set out to be confirmed by Bishop Robert in Barcelona. They went down with Bishop Jorge (see previous post) who had been visiting Andorra and with Brnda Ross who came as witness of the confirmation service.

This was a very special service as rarely does the bishop pass through Barcelona and a number adults took advantage of this opportunity to be confirmed.

Visit by Bishop Jorge of Peru

Bishp Jorge, the Bishop of Peru, came to Barcelona to visit Deborah and John Chapman and it was decided that he should also see Andorra. So on Friday he came up by bus and stayed with Elsa & Michael Derham and was taken around, including a trip to caldea with Brenda Ross. We then held a short eucharistic service with him in the afternoon and on Sunday drove him back down to Barcelona where some of us joined in the service there – a very special service (see next post)
