A 50 Anniversary to give thanks to God
Is 29 July marks the 50 years since the Church of San Juan of the Hospital was entrusted to the Prelature of the Opus Dei, through an agreement signed with the Diocese of Valencia. Although we have advanced the celebration at the 24 June -date in which took place the opening to the worship of the Church, a year later (1967)-, through a solemn mass of the Cardinal and the blessing of the old medieval urban cemetery, the masses that will be held the 29 July will be Thanksgiving.
In parallel to the works of restoration-in which have collaborated different people and institutions along these 50 years-, the pastoral dynamism of the Church, inspired by the spirit of Saint Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei- It has developed these years a series of initiatives of worship, formation and catechesis, as well as also various tasks of care type, social, artistic and cultural.
We express the desire to continue to serve the diocese and the Church universal, as well as to all and each a them people that flock to San Juan of the Hospital to receive attention pastoral or to cover any type of need.
Throughout this year that begins will have place different events commemorative of who will go informing.
