‘Mystagogia’ talks

Following the success of the Lenten Talks, the Cornerstone Planning Group has arranged three ‘Mystagogia’ talks on three separate Wednesday evenings after Easter from 7.30pm to 9pm, with tea and coffee served from 7pm.  They will be held at the Cornerstone, Charles Street, Cardiff CF10 2SF on the Wednesday June 5th.  Subjects will include spirituality, pastoral contribution to the life and ministry of the parish, fulfilling your baptismal promises and looking towards Pentecost.  Whilst these talks were originally planned for RCIA Candidates who will have been received into full communion with the Church at Easter, they will be interesting for all parishioners to hear.  Everyone is welcome.  For more information, please e-mail madeleine.walters@rcadc.org

Bereavement Support in Parishes

The Archdiocese of Cardiff Family Life Commission are organising a training day for all those interested in either starting a Bereavement Support Group in their Parish or those who have joined a group over the last year. The course will be one day and will be held at the Pastoral Resource Centre on Saturday 6th July. The cost of the course will be £25 and this will include all materials and lunch.

There will also be a day for existing groups on 22nd June. This will give people the opportunity to share their ideas, worries and resources. There will also be an input from Papyrus, A charity working to raise the awareness of young suicide and support available. https://papyrus-uk.org/

We would urge anyone joining us on the 6th July training day to also join us on the 22nd June when information on setting up new groups will also be given.

Please register your interest for these courses by contacting: flc@rcadc.org


The Bishops of England and Wales have produced the attached statement in relation to the Settlement Scheme for EU Citizens living in the United Kingdom after Brexit. This will obviously be a matter of concern for a number of our people. Should you need to, please download a copy. Hopefully, it will help with understanding this procedure. It will also appear in The Catholic People and on the Diocesan website.

The local SVP charity shop is appealing for donations, in particular good condition women’s clothing and bric a brac.  Please bring any items to a weekend Mass or let Judy (Cowbridge) or Chris (Llantwit Major) know if you’d like items collected.


Praise & Worship

A group of people from several Parishes within the Archdiocese meet to Praise & Worship the Lord. My personal experience of this is that even when I go on occasion with a burdened heart, I leave with joy & peace. Interested? We meet twice a month 7pm – 8.30pm.
Every first Monday of the month at St. Helen’s RC Parish Hall, Court Road, Barry, CF63 4ET.
Every third Monday at Holy Family RC Church, Carter Place (off Keyston Road), Fairwater, Cardiff CF5 3NP.
