Congratulations and well done to those men and women of the parish who today received Holy Communion for the first time. Many thanks to all those who helped to prepare them for this day of grace and to all those who had some part to play – be it decorating the church, preparing the breakfast party, and so on. It’s wonderful to see our school and parish coming together when our younger members receive the sacraments. May God bless you all and fill you with his strength and love. (More pictures here)
This year, March 2nd is the solemnity of St David, the patron saint of Wales and first bishop of Menevia.
This holy monk, abbot and archbishop asks us “to be joyful, to keep the faith and to do the little things.”
Happy St David’s Day to all!

The month of October has traditionally been dedicated to praying the Rosary.
There are many useful websites which can help understand this prayer and how to pray it. A few of those sites are included below.
Instructions on how the Rosary are here. While the Wikipedia page can be found by clicking here. Pope Pius XII wrote an Encyclical on the Rosary and Pope John Paul II wrote an Apostolic Letter soon after he’d added the Mysteries of Light.
To Celebrate the Month of the Rosary, Fr Liam is going to conclude the month by leading the parish in an evening of Marian Devotion on Thursday 30th October at 7pm in the Church of St David and St Patrick.
This weekend is Home Mission Sunday – the day annually when we are invited to pray for and support the Church’s work of Evangelisation in England and Wales. The theme this year is:
“in the heart of the family’
We are reminded that the work of evangelisation begins within our own families – in our own homes – and also within the spiritual family of our parish. The bishops of England and Wales ask that we reflect very especially on how the Lord might be calling us to reach out to those that we know, in our home and parish family, who are non churchgoing Catholics. For more information look here.
