On the evening of Friday, 14th September the Anglican Church in Palma hosted a superb variety show called ‘September Song’.
There were choirs such as the Georgie Insull Singers and the Music Makers from Puerto Pollenca, we laughed at short sketches, we listened to solos and duets, some beautifully moving some decidedly funny.
The evening finished with refreshments being served in the Coleman Hall beneath the church and the whole event raised a magnificent €600 for church funds.
Thanks go to all of the artists, but especially to Ray Gidley who produced and Conway Jones our musical director.
The Anglican Church in Palma hosted a Memorial Mass for Rev’d Canon Jim Hawthorne MBE who died on 14th July of this year after a battle against multiple sclerosis.
Jim was the Anglican Chaplain here on Mallorca back in the 1990’s and many have fond memories of his unique and colourful ministry here on the island. He was a sociable person and managed to get to know a wide range of people both within and outside the English speaking community here.
He was also the last Anglican Chaplain on Mallorca to have, for his first three years here, responsibility for the islands of Minorca and Ibiza as well.
During the Mass held on Sunday, 12th August at 11am, the current Chaplain preached on the subject of the ministry that we all share and then during an ‘open mic’ time in the service others came forward to offer their memories of Jim.
