Open Mornings

Since the 1870s, Nazareth House has been at the heart of caring for those in need in Cardiff, but have you wondered what our role is, in the Twenty First Century? We have cared for the elderly and this is now our primary role within the local community. A series of Open Mornings will be held over the coming months, where the Sisters & members of staff will be able to discuss the services which we now offer.

Please join us following 10.00am Mass for tea, coffee & biscuits, on Wednesday 7th August 2019.

You are very welcome to attend!



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.
