Year of the Word

To celebrate the Year of the Word, Fr Jerome Ituah OCD had set up a great schedule of talks happening all around the diocese – but Covid-19 put a stop to those plans!  The talks are available from the Diocese of Menevia School of Evangelisation and Catechetics (DOMSEC) website or the links below:

November Dead List

If you would like your deceased relatives, friends and loved ones remembered in a special way at each Mass during November, please pop their details in one of the brown envelopes available in the porch when we re-open and place the envelopes in the basket at the back of the Church.  They will be placed in front of the Altar at each Mass in November.  Anniversaries will be shared with the List.  A reminder that the suggested Mass stipend is £10.  Until we re-open you can email me the names of those you wish to remember and I will print their names off.

Appeal for Stewards

Please note that we are returning to normal pre-lockdown Sunday Mass times for the weekend 26-27 September.  However, in order to make this possible we are required to have two stewards at each Mass.  Please consider joining the volunteer rota, thank you.

St Vincent de Paul Society

If anyone would like a friendly contact to talk to, especially in these times of isolation, you can reach out to two members of the SVP in Haverfordwest:

Gustavo  01834 861322

Don  01437 763711

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.
