The Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

30 October 2016


He entered Jericho and was going through the town and suddenly a man whose name was Zacchaeus made his appearance; he was one of the senior tax collectors and a wealthy man. He kept trying to see which Jesus was, but he was too short and could not see him for the crowd; so he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to catch a glimpse of Jesus who was to pass that way. When Jesus reached the spot he looked up and spoke to him, 'Zacchaeus, come down. Hurry, because I am to stay at your house today.' And he hurried down and welcomed him joyfully. They all complained when they saw what was happening. 'He has gone to stay at a sinner's house,' they said. But Zacchaeus stood his ground and said to the Lord, 'Look, sir, I am going to give half my property to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody I will pay him back four times the amount.' And Jesus said to him, 'Today salvation has come to this house, because this man too is a son of Abraham; for the Son of man has come to seek out and save what was lost.'

Luke 19:1-10

Future of Menevia UPDATE 17 Nov

The meeting held with the clergy and Archbishop George Stack last week proved more constructive than the previous meeting.  A vote was taken by the clergy of the diocese who were unanimous in declaring their preference to keep the Diocese of Menevia unchanged and to appoint a new bishop.  Archbishop Stack will now send a report to the Papal Nuncio for England and Wales who will in turn report back to the
Congregation of Bishops in Rome. We await their decision on the future of Menevia.

September 2019:  The Future of our Diocese

Archbishop George Stack, the Apostolic Administrator for the Diocese of Menevia recently held a meeting with the Clergy of Menevia to discuss the future of the diocese in light of the Instruction from Rome to the Apostolic Administrator “To carry out all the necessary steps with the clergy and people of God in the Diocese of Menevia, and in close contact with the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales and its President, to verify the hypothesis of a union - now in Persona Episcopi - of the said Diocese with the Metropolitan
Archdiocese of Cardiff”.  Further instructed: “To inform the Congregation of Bishops, by the end of this year, through the good offices of the Apostolic Nunciature, the preliminary results of this consultation”.  Bearing in mind
the information /analysis / experience outlined above, the options seem to be:
A. The appointment of an Ordinary (Bishop) to the Diocese. In making such a proposal, the consultees would need to present a strategy as to how these issues are to be resolved.
B. The establishment of a joint Diocese of Cardiff and the current Diocese of Menevia, each maintaining its own identity under the authority of the Metropolitan. The consultees would need to analyse the various modes of
administration/relationships/organisation of such a model.
C. The absorption of parts of the current Diocese of Menevia with the Archdiocese of Cardiff and parts of the said Diocese with the current Diocese of Wrexham.  In addition to the above, the consultees would need to reflect on the geographical and demographic boundaries of such a division and the implications thereof.
D. Any other permutation, structure or suggestions as to the best way of providing episcopal oversight and pastoral care for the People of God in this part of Wales.


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.
