Church Re-opening Guidance

Please respect these guidelines for your health and safety, and for everyone else's, thank you!  Let's pray that we can return to public worship as soon as possible.

Feel free to come to church any time in the opening hours as long as you're not feeling unwell with any illness.  Please bring something warm as all the doors and windows are left open throughout to aid circulation of fresh air.

Please sanitise your hands on entry and help yourself to a prayer sheet.

The steward will guide you, but make your way to any pew that's not taped off, and sit in the far end of the pew (so that you're furthest from the aisle).

Feel free to stay as long as you like, although if the church is very busy just be aware there may be people queuing!

If you'd like to light a candle, please let the steward know and they will light one on your behalf.  Please don't touch any statues and keep general touching of other pews etc to a minimum.

When you're ready to leave, please ensure the aisle is free of anyone coming in or out. As you leave please sanitise your hands again and make your way out via the exit door (which is the original church entrance now in use again!).




Holy Father's prayer intention for


Watch his July video appeal


18th June 2020:

Dear friends

Father Mansel will be returning from bereavement leave to rejoin the parish from 1st September.

I have received a letter from the Diocese about proposals for a new school curriculum in Wales.  The Archbishop is encouraging everyone to access the Government consultation and make their views known (closing date July 28th 2020).  

The last paragraph of the letter states:

"Teachers, parents and the church authorities have major reservations about the proposals contained within this consultation. If approved, they would undermine the very purpose of the provision of education in a Catholic school. The timing of the consultation is also problematic. It is due to be concluded by 28 July 2020. This consultation and possible implementation is being held at a time of great confusion. The issues faces by governors and teachers in “getting pupils back to school” are surely challenging enough without the additional burdens being imposed by these proposed measures. Please access the consultation document. Please make your views known. Emphasise the reason why you choose a Catholic education for your children and the necessity for a Catholic R.E. curriculum."

God bless you

CAFOD Coronavirus Appeal

Pip Large has asked for us to join in CAFOD's pandemic response in prayers and donations: "As the parish CAFOD rep I'd like to encourage support for those living in already desperate conditions and the local experts who will be trying to fight the disease with them.  It's shocking enough watching our NHS trying to cope, but the effects in refugee camps and communities in developing countries will be devastating."  

Examination of Conscience

Here is the Examination of Conscience based on the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, that Fr Matt used in the service before Pentecost.

A Prayer for our Diocese

Almighty and eternal God, give us the grace and strength to carry out the work entrusted to us in the Diocese of Menevia.  Bless our families and our parishes.  You call men and women from our families to serve you as priests, deacons and in the religious life.  May we read the signs of these vocations in others and help them to follow you.  We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.   Amen.
