This year marks 100 years of the Church in Wales. It will be celebrated with a special themed year of faith, spirituality and community. As a Diocese, we will embark on a Year of Pilgrimage and discover how faith makes a difference to our communities.

Whether church has always played an important part in your life or you are at the beginning of your faith journey, our Year of Pilgrimage can help you further explore your spirituality. Take part in a local pilgrimage or join in worship and celebration – it’s up to you. See more information in the latest Croeso magazine or at  

Last week we had Tedi Pererin/Pilgrim Bear with us, accompanying Fr Mark on his travels around the parish. You can see some of the photos on Facebook or Twitter. (He’ll be with us again in 2 weeks time.)

IDEAS NEEDED We’ve had some great ideas sent in for pilgrimages or events, but more would be very welcome. Please speak to Fr Mark, Mthr Rose or the churchwardens ASAP if you have some ideas for Parish events.
