Farewell and Best Wishes to our Vicar

The Christmas Carol service of December 2nd will be our current vicar’s last in Ibiza. The Reverend Dr Peter Pimentel is retiring at the end of the year, and will be returning to the U.K.

Peter said “It will be sad for us to be leaving our church and community friends too. Church services will be continuing as usual led either by our own church members and/or locums. The church is in the capable hands of our churchwardens Julia Moore and Rosi Todd. The church will soon be writing a parish profile and looking for my successor with the help of the Anglican Diocese in Europe. God bless.”

Tyke Fortier Klein will be known to Ibizan readers, if not by name, certainly as the view of the pew prior to Peter taking up his Ibiza diocese. Tyke echoed the views of us all saying “we are very sad that Peter and Sue are leaving, but feel blessed and extremely fortunate to have had them here with us these past four years.”
