The two churches where Father Richard A. Seabrook SSC is Priest, the Chaplaincy of Ss Peter and Paul, Torrevieja, will be celebrating Mothering Sunday during the weekend of 9th and 10th March with the Blessing and Giving of Flowers during celebrations of the Holy Eucharist.


At La Siesta Church and Lago Jardín Church we´ll be honouring the gift of motherhood with two special Masses, on Saturday 9th at La Siesta at 5 p.m. and Sunday 10th at Lago Jardín at 11.30 a.m. said Father Seabrook on a day when the Church gives thanks for mothers on a day we call Mothering Sunday.


Father Seabrook continued: At the end of the Mass, the Priest blesses small posies of flowers which children collect and give to their mums and the other ladies in church also come forward to receive flowers. It is a lovely tradition.


The two churches at La Siesta and Lago Jardín celebrate the Eucharist in English every weekend. On Mothering Sunday, said Father Seabrook, we not only remember and give thanks for our own mothers but we also celebrate motherhood in all its wonderful manifestations including Our Holy Mother Mary, the Mother of Jesus; and Holy Mother Church guiding and nurturing her children on the path of faith. Everyone is welcome to come and join us!


There will be refreshments after Mass outside the churches.


La Siesta Church is on Calle Granados, Urbanización La Siesta, Torrevieja and Lago Jardín Church is on Urbanización Lago Jardín opposite the Dña Monse Hotel, on the CV95 as you leave Torrevieja towards San Miguel de Salinas.
