CORONATION CELEBRATIONS IN TORREVIEJA
Ss Peter and Paul, Torrevieja, La Siesta Church Calle Granados, Urb La Siesta, Torrevieja
The Chaplaincy of Ss Peter and Paul, Torrevieja is preparing with great excitement for the Coronation on May 6th.
The Coronation of King Charles III is a time of great rejoicing and celebration said Father Richard A. Seabrook and our church will be commemorating this historical and spiritual event on three days over the Coronation weekend.
On Friday 5th May there will be a special Mass in English at 11.30am to pray for His Majesty the King and Her Majesty the Queen Consort as they prepare to go to Westminster Abbey for the Coronation. Whilst all the pageantry and ceremonial are spectacular with great processions of coaches, at the heart of the Coronation is a great act of worship, a celebration of the Eucharist, the crowning and the most sacred act – that of the anointing, said Father Seabrook. This is why we come together before the Coronation to pray for the King and Queen and also that we may be prepared spiritually for the day of the Coronation.
On Sunday 7th May the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at La Siesta at 11.30am will give thanks for the Coronation and special prayers will be offered with hymns of praise to God. All are invited to both services on May 5th and May 7th.
The Coronation Celebration begins at 4pm and will take place outside La Siesta Church on Calle Granados, Torrevieja.
Father Seabrook commented The death of her late Majesty the Queen last September showed how important the Monarch is for us and now we anticipate with joy the Coronation and the sense of coming together in celebration this brings. I do hope those who would like to celebrate the Coronation will join us. Everyone is welcome. God save The King!
