What We Do
Gatwick Chaplaincy supports Hajj and other spiritual pilgrimmages. This can involve up to 250 people on Hajj charter flights and large groups for other religious communities.
Beatification of Alvaro del Portillo
The photograph below shows Father Mark Georges, Father Leonardo Bravo and Gatwick’s Deacon Wells with about 45 parishoners celebrating mass at the start of the last leg of their memorable trip to Madrid for the Beatification of Alvaro del Portillo in September 2014. Alvaro worked with St. Josemaria to provide training for laypeople to help them find God in daily life. Alvaro del Portillo launched the mission in Trinidad, for which he is always warmly remembered.
