What is a preachathon?
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.
