The Royal British Legion, Spain District North has a new District Chaplain, with Father Ray Andrews taking over the role from the Reverend Terence Samson.
Father Ray was born in Greenwich, London and spent a good deal of time there, living briefly in Spain and Southern Africa. He trained as a psychotherapist, specialising in addiction, and still practices today at a clinic in Alicante.
His last London parish was St George the Martyr in Southwark, where he was parish priest to the Head Office of The Royal British Legion on Borough High Street. Father Ray came to live in Spain in 2015, taking the position of Chaplain in the Costa Blanca Chaplaincy.
Father Ray said: “I was delighted and honoured to be asked to serve as Chaplain for the District North of The RBL here in Spain, particularly given my association with the organisation in London. I look forward to this happy association.”
