Welcome to new Team Chaplain in Costa Blanca

On Monday over 100 people assembled to welcome Fr Don Witts and his wife Doreen. Fr Don was licensed as the new Team Chaplain in the Costa Blanca Anglican Chaplaincy. He has pastoral responsibility for the congregations in Albir, Alfaz del Pi and El Campello.
