Notices

13th April 2020:

Dear friends

Happy Easter to each one of you! Jesus is risen, the true source of our joy. In him we become truly free and fully ourselves. Happy feasting in this holy season!

We continue to keep Fr Mansel in our prayers.  I'll continue to be here in Tenby while he's away, so be sure that your beautiful church is still being prayed in, the Mass is being offered with your intentions in mind, and the Lord is not being left alone in the tabernacle!  I will try to celebrate Mass in Saundersfoot at some point in order to renew the Lord's Presence there too.  If you happen to be passing one of the two churches on your daily walk, although it may not be possible to be inside and near the tabernacle, you can simply imagine that the whole building has become the tabernacle, and perhaps say that prayer from Benediction: 'O Sacrament most holy, O Sacrament divine, all praise and all thanksgiving, be every moment thine', or simply speak in your heart the name of Jesus.  May this time increase our hunger to be close to Him and to each other once again.

I am also LOVING your beaches and this beautiful parish!  Aren't we so blessed to live somewhere like this at a time of isolation, even if just from our windows?!  Thank you so much too for the warmth and kindness you've shown me over the last couple of weeks.

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."

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.
