Celebration of Santa Margarita

While the ministry of the Anglican chaplaincy in Menorca is clearly and primarily for the English-speaking community on the island, we live amongst the local people and their customs, and it behoves us, every once in a while, to participate in the life and traditions of the community. The day traditionally designated to celebrate Santa […]

We decorated cup cakes with lions’ faces. And we constructed paper lions’ heads. The […]

This June sees the occurrence of a number of noteworthy anniversaries, some of which remain relevant in either poignant or disturbing ways today.
