During the afternoon of October 5, the Residence for Elderly Claret Granada had the privilege of receiving the first visit of Don José María Gil Tamayo, until now bishop of Avila and since October 1 new coadjutor archbishop of the Archdiocese of Granada.
On his arrival at the centre he was received by Frs. Juan Jesús Gea, Superior of the Claretian Community, and Félix Jesús Martínez, Prefect of Formation and Spirituality, together with the residents who were very eager to see him, welcoming him with songs and much joy.
Don José María dedicated a few words to our elders, said a few prayers with them and gave them his blessing. He was also very close and friendly, chatting with our elders, bringing a smile to their faces and a lot of faith.
He also had a more intimate time to visit one of our residents, Don Francisco Martínez Fernández, who was a military chaplain and is currently in our residence. It was a visit filled with joy, hope and faith.
