-Thank You for the Christmas Carol Service Success
The Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar Ecumenical Carol Service was held on Saturday 14th December in the Parish Church of San Andres in Torre del Mar, where Christians from different traditions, International friends and residents in the Axarquia, came together to pray and enjoy the traditional carols. The prayers were led by the Rev. James Tayler- Episcopal Reformed Spanish Church, Don Juan Francisco Cardaldas G.- Torre del Mar Parish Priest, Pastor Manfred Ottertstaetter- Evangelical German Church, Rev Anelisse Bager- Danish Church, readings by various members of the congregation and the carols were performed by the Spanish Choir “Amigos de Lux Mundi” director Julio Bautista, the German Choir “Con Los Cantores” director Lisa Kropp and the TIMS English Choir director Margaret Williams. It was a most enjoyable Service, with the congregation joining in the various carols, the words of which were displayed on large screens at the sides of the church and the service ended in candle light with the congregation holding candles. After the Service many of the friends and the choirs enjoyed drinks and a buffet supper in the upper room of the church and of course there was more carol singing. We would like to give thanks to all those from the community who came to support this especial event of Lux Mundi and for their generosity, 630 Euros were collected which will be distributed by the Parish Church to help families and children in need.
