What is a preachathon?

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - SOCIAL SCENE -

Good ques­tion!

If you go to The Er­mita San Josep on Novem­ber 13, for 11am, you could see one for your­self !

The idea is that Fa­ther Mar­cus Ronchetti, Se­nior Chap­lain of the Costa Blanca Angli­can Chap­laincy, will pre­pare and preach a se­ries of spon­sored ser­mons to raise much needed funds for the con­tin­u­ing work of the Chap­laincy ( the Church of Eng­land in Spain).

Fa­ther Mar­cus will preach at the rate of €5 per minute, so the more spon­sor­ship, the more ser­mons! Each in­di­vid­ual ser­mon will be on an iden­ti­fied topic and will last about 20 min­utes and each ser­mon will be fol­lowed by a pop­u­lar hymn. De­pend­ing on the spon­sor­ship raised, the preachathon could last an hour or two (or more!) so the or­gan­is­ers have made it clear that any­body and every­body is free to drop in, even for a few min­utes, longer if they so wish. Of course, you could sup­port Fa­ther Mar­cus through­out this dif­fi­cult chal­lenge and stay to the end!

Er­mita San Josep is lo­cated on Avin­guda de la Fustera, 39, 03720 Benissa.

Ev­ery Sun­day, the Chap­laincy holds C of E ser­vices at seven churches in the north Costa Blanca. It also ad­min­is­ters to the sick, con­ducts chris­ten­ings, wed­dings and fu­ner­als, and sup­ports a num­ber of char­i­ties.
