A parish church of St. Josemaría in Valencia, Spain

On January 10, Valencia’s Archbishop Agustin Garcia-Gasco visited the construction site of the new parish of St. Josemaría Escrivá, in the Campanar district.

The parish church, which is equipped with elevators and access ramps for persons with physical disabilities, has a 92-foot-high bell tower.

In addition to the main church, a daily Mass chapel has seats for 150 people, with independent access and a connection to the central nave.

The rectangular central nave can fit 400 people seated, and includes eight confessionals. The church is presided over by a reredos featuring the Rosary’s Mysteries of Light, made up of five pictures. The one in the center, six and a half feet tall, is dedicated to the Eucharist and to the church’s patron saint. The church also has a side chapel dedicated to our Lady of the Abandoned, with a statue of Our Lady of the Rosary.

Among other social initiatives, the parish offers assistance for immigrants and needy families. A network of volunteers has been organized to help provide assistance.
