The Reformation fell on hard times in Spain. The Spanish Inquisition was vibrant and energetic and that institution was not disbanded until 1834. This meant that anyone sympathetic to Protestant ideas had to flee from Spain or keep their ideas to themselves.
There is a bit of my article on our special celebration of the 500th anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation which took place on October 31st at the Cathedral of the Redeemer here in Madrid.
Read it all at VirtueOnline.
Como unos de los pastores de la Catedral Anglicana del Redentor en Madrid uno de mis deberes es predicar. Este sermón fue predicado el 29 do Octubre de 2017.
Hace unos años, en las 80s o 90s, el Rvdo. Puchades escribió un folleto pequeño con el título La Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal (IERE) para la serie Pluralismo Religioso. He intentado contactar la edición pero por lo que veo ya no existe. Ya que la mayoría del libro consiste en documentos históricos de la IERE, y ya que Puchades era ministro de nuestra iglesia, siento libre compartir mi copia personal con vosotros para uso de investigación solamente.
The Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain (of which I am a clergy member) published this booklet some decades ago. It really needs to be updated! However, there is little information available about the Anglican Cathedral of the Redeemer in Madrid, so I thought I would make this booklet available to any researcher or curious party. I scanned it and it can now be found at Scribd. Also, check out the cathedral’s homepage.
I hope to post some more pictures of the cathedral church soon. For now, here is the altar and the cathedra.
This is where I serve as deacon and we have some eight services per week.
- Morning prayer at 9 AM from Tuesday through Friday.
- Evening prayer on Wednesday at 5:00 and Saturday at 6:30.
- Sunday mornings at 11:30 we alternate between Morning Prayer and Communion
- Sunday night at 9:00 we have our Taizé worship. (Though once November comes that will be moved to 8 pm.)
However, I noted that Wikipedia did not have a page for our cathedral, in English at least. It was there in Spanish. Having composed pages for other previous churches in the Diocese of Jerusalem, I thought I would compose this one too.
So here is the new Wikipedia page, which I hope to expand: Anglican Cathedral of the Redeemer.
