Programme WAF Cardiff Promoters Training Day – poster


Sunday 24th March, 3pm at St David’s Catholic Sixth Form College, Ty-Gwyn Rd., Cardiff with Archbishop Barry Morgan. The Archbishop recently presented a TV series following the footsteps of Gerald from Wales to Rome and described him as a character full of contradictions. All are welcome to this free event.



LENTEN TALK will be held at the Cornerstone on each Friday of Lent up to 12th April. All talks start at 1.30pm and are available with soup and a roll lunch (donations accepted). Abbot Paul Stonham of Belmot Abbey, the Lord Mayor of Cardiff as well as the clergy and religious from the Diocese will lead the spiritual reflections.


Lenten Retreat: “The Word of God is something alive and active” (Hebrews 4:12)

During this Lenten Retreat we shall focus on how God speaks to us and on how we listen.
Together we shall reflect on the power of God’s Word and on three pathways into listening: Adoration, the Bible and the voice of the poor.

The retreat will be held on Saturday 6th April 2019 from 10:30am to 3:00pm (registration starts at 10am) at St. David’s Catholic College (Ty-Gwyn Road Cardiff CF23 5QD) It is free of charge and is open to people of all faiths and no faith. Lunch will be provided. To allow us to adequately organise the event and provide a meal for all people attending, please contact
Christian Mahoney on 07764515864 or email to confirm your attendance.



Forming Intentional Disciples:

Saturday 15th June 2019, Sherry Weddell will be running a day of workshops drawing on her extensive research into the ‘thresholds’ or ‘stages’ that people go through when becoming disciples of Jesus Christ. In preparation for her visit to the Diocese, The Cathedral is running a reading and discussing group for six weeks, beginning on Friday 22nd February from 11am to 12.15pm in the Cornerstone, ending on Friday 29th March.  For more information, please contact



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.

SVP charity shop

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.
All invited & welcome.
