9 WELSH PROVINCE The area covered by this Directory and Year book comprises Wales and Herefordshire. Since March 1987 the province has contained three dioceses, the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cardiff and the suffragan sees of Menevia and Wrexham. Historical background The area known as the Welsh Province, comprising Wales and Herefordshire, has a long history of Christianity. The martyrdom of SS Alban, Julius and Aaron is the first landmark in our Christian history. It is probable that they were put to death in the persecution of Valeriam 257-9. It is believed Alban was martyred at where is now the City of St Albans and it is believed that Julius and Aaron were citizens of Caerleon and were probably martyred there. We know that at the Council of Arles three British Bishops were present. During these years Christianity made great strides and spread throughout the whole land until the final withdrawal of the Roman Legions in 406. While Eastern Britain eventually became England through the Anglo Saxon invasion, Wales remained steadfastly Christian, which produced many great Christian Leaders, including SS Iltyd, Dyfrig, David and Teilo. In 597 St Augustine was sent by the Pope to begin the conversion of the pagan English. He had two meetings with the British Bishops and Abbots. St Augustine wanted the Welsh Church to amend a number of its local traditions, particularly to keep Easter according to the Roman date. Without doubt, St Augustine handled this badly. The result was an excess of ill-feeling between the English and Welsh Churches which Augustine’,s successor, St Lawence, caused in Ireland and Scotland as well. The dispute lasted until 768 when a young Welsh Bishop called Elfodd persuaded his fellow countrymen to come into line with the Roman Easter date. In the words of the great Welsh historian, Sir John Edward Lloyd, ‘,loyalty of the Welsh to the See of Peter was not in question and Rome found her commands as readily obeyed in Wales as in all other parts of the West.’, The capture and re-organisation of the Welsh ecclesiastical system by the Norman conquerors saw the confirmation of four Welsh dioceses, St. David’,s, Bangor, Llandaff and St. Asaph with the appointment of Bishops in line with the wishes of the Norman overlords. They became accepted, often with some reluctance, by the people of Wales. Extensive foundation of monasteries, in particular by the Cistercians, and later the influence of the Franciscan, Dominican and other Friars, helped the process of pacification and acceptance until the Reformation. Under Henry VIII, Wales became part of the realm of England and the four dioceses part of his autonomous “,Church of England”, of which he proclaimed himself the “,supreme head”,. All the Welsh religious houses were suppressed in 1536 with deep social implications for the people and except for a brief period under Mary the members of the Catholic Church in Wales and England then entered a two hundred year period of deprivation and persecution. Despite early resistance to the changes, the Old Faith barely survived in many parts of Wales. Large numbers of the Catholic gentry faced penury and imprisonment for being recusants - refusing to attend the new services in the parish church. Missionary priests educated abroad were hunted down when they returned and tried to minister to pockets of Catholics in secret houses. Being hung, drawn and quartered was the penalty they faced for being “,massing”, PROVINCE P01-18_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:02 Page 9

10 priests. These policies gradually prevailed and the supply of priests diminished drastically - except in some large estates owned by heroic and influential Catholics, particularly in Monmouthshire. Families like the Vaughans, the Gunters and the Herberts hid and maintained chaplains so that their own families and their workers could attend the celebration of the Mass. Gradually the penal laws against Catholics were eased and in 1829 this culminated in Catholic Emancipation when a great many - but by no means all - of the restrictions on Catholics were swept away. From 1688, despite the danger to the individuals appointed, Rome chose men of piety, integrity, sacrifice and learning to act as vicars apostolic to areas of Britain. Wales and Herefordshire were part of what was known as the Western District This was administered by the following monks and friars whose appointments as vicars apostolic carried the rank of bishop. 1688-1708 Philip Michael Ellis OSB 1715-1 7 5 0 Matthew Prichard OFM 17 5 0-1 7 6 3 Lawrence York OSB 17 6 3-1 7 9 7 Charles Walmsley OSB 1797-1809 W. G. Sharrock OSB 1809-1829 Peter B. Collingridge OFM 1829-1840 Peter Augustine Baines OSB In 1840 the Western District was divided into two. Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and Wales became the Welsh District, with Bishop Brown, OSB as vicar apostolic. Ten years later further changes were made to the Welsh District. In 1850 the diocese of Newport and Menevia was set up as a suffragan see of Westminster diocese, with Bishop Brown in charge. He was followed by Bishop Hedley: 1850-1880 Thomas Joseph Brown OSB 1880-1895 John Cuthbert Hedley OSB Boundaries were changed in 1895, when the diocese of Newport was redefined as comprising the counties of Glamorgan, Monmouth and Hereford. Bishop Hedley was reappointed in 1895 and continued until 1916. Francis Mostyn was vicar apostolic for the rest of the area until 1898 when it was made the diocese of Menevia of which he became the Ordinary. In 1916 the Cardiff Province was established, comprising the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Cardiff with the diocese of Menevia as a suffragan see, and the following served as archbishops: 1916-19 2 0 James R. Bilsborrow OSB 1920-1939 Francis Mostyn 1940-1961 Michael McGrath 1961-1983 John A. Murphy 1983-2001 John Aloysius Ward OFM Cap. 2001-2010 Peter D. Smith 2 011 - George Stack The Bishops of Menevia from 1898 to 2008 are listed on p.102. When the Province was restructured in 1987, James Hannigan, previously Bishop of Menevia, was translated to the new diocese of Wrexham and Daniel Mullins became bishop for the restructured Menevia diocese.

21 FOREWORD The first quarter of the 21st century will surely be defined by three major events the consequences of which are still with us today and will remain for many years to come. The first is the traumatic terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York, now infamously known as 9/11. The second is the financial crisis of 2008 in which international, national and personal debt could no longer be sustained by the banking system. The result was the collapse of major companies, businesses and the ruin of many lives. The third is the coronavirus pandemic which has affected the health of the world and changed the patterns of physical and mental health care, socialisation, and education. It also revealed levels of systemic poverty not recognised in the ‘,age of prosperity ‘, we so often assume is the norm. Each of these events have implications for every institution and every individual. The waves of refugees from war torn countries, many of them victims of the terror threats emanating from the events of 9/11, have become a major challenge to Europe and beyond. Terrorism itself knows no bounds and has created tension on our own streets and neighbourhoods. This world landscape also challenges us to recognise the causes of such suffering, turmoil and injustice. Society at large is being challenged to contribute to the solution of these problems in many different ways. The universal Catholic Church, under the inspiration of Pope Francis, has been second to none in its outreach to refugees, displaced persons and victims of war. The Archdiocese of Cardiff has continued to provide accommodation for five refugee families in addition to assisting community groups for those seeking asylum. The implications of the financial crisis will live with us for many years to come. The limited availability of affordable housing continues to affect people on low incomes. The difficulty of getting on the property ladder excludes other families from the legitimate aspiration of owning their own home. The partnership of the Archdiocese of Cardiff with local Housing Associations has sought to ameliorate some of these problems by the provision of suitable affordable accommodation for a significant number of families. The safety net of social security on which so many families depend has been radically altered with the changes in the rules of Universal Credit which came into force in 2021. The phasing out of the £,20 per week boost to universal credit is due to take effect in the Autumn. The new system, though ostensibly simpler, will undoubtedly have a deleterious effect on a number of people. The social outreach of the Church will continue to be needed in the years that lie ahead. Covid 19 has profoundly affected the way in which we live. It has also exposed levels of social inequality and food poverty which was hardly recognised before the pandemic. The Archdiocese of Cardiff has been engaged throughout the pandemic in providing support to those most seriously impacted by social isolation and helping to improve mental well being of many people. The painful reality of food poverty which lies beneath the surface of so many communities and families was exacerbated by increased unemployment and lack of access to social services. “,Staying Together whilst Apart”, was the name of the various programs initiated by the Diocese serviced by many volunteers in the various parishes. Over £,130,000 in Food Vouchers was distributed to needy families, together with the provision of food parcels, meal deliveries and digital support for those cut off from relatives and friends. Cooperation with Welsh Government and other funders ensured that over £,430,000 in aid of various kinds was provided CARDIFF p19-66_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:04 Page 21

22 during this time. The network of Catholic schools which have direct knowledge and experience of those families in need was an essential part of this outreach. In addition to a number of other initiatives, the partnership between the Diocese and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in transforming the former St. Clare’,s church in Ely into a local community centre has been particularly exciting. Managed by the SVP with a team of volunteers directed by a professional manager, this St. Vincent’,s Centre will offer much needed support to vulnerable members of the community in that part of Cardiff. The pattern and shape of the life of the Church has also been changed by the global pandemic. Throughout the year, the norm of gathering for Mass has been suspended to the restrictions imposed by National and Local Government. This has inevitably had a significant effect on parish and diocesan life. The development of Live Stream facilities in many churches has opened up new possibilities of engaging with worshippers and non-worshippers alike. It could and should be a useful tool for evangelisation in the years to come. Priests have developed ways of keeping in contact with parishioners not merely by Live Streaming Mass, but also offering devotions and prayers, recorded Mass and reflections online. All of this outreach will, hopefully, be developed creatively in the years to come. Nonetheless, we are a church of communion and the fundamental reality is that the People of God gather together as one body in order to become the Body of Christ in this time and in this place. Herein lies a challenge and opportunity for the Church at large and the Diocese and parishes in particular in the post Covid world. How to welcome congregations home to their church and community will be a challenge and a privilege in the coming year. These are all expressions of the Communio which lies at the heart of the Church. The Archdiocese of Cardiff has a significant historic patrimony in its care of every church in the diocese, but particular attention has to be given to those which have been “,Listed”, as Grade 2 buildings of special architectural importance. Four of these churches have recently been awarded significant heritage funding to assist in the repair, restoration and maintenance of these outstanding buildings. They are: St. Dyfrig’,s, Treforest, Our Lady of the Angels, Cwmbran, St. Mary’,s Monmouth and Our Lady of Peace, Newbridge. These grants are not easily available and it is thanks in no small way to the local parish priests, local voluntary teams, architects and diocesan personnel that the planning and execution of this work has been so successfully completed. The Diocesan Evangelisation Team has continued its work throughout this extraordinary year. Broadcasting scripture meditations and reflections on the gospel as well as developing a valuable program entitled “,Spread the Gospel –, Developing a Missionary Parish”, to provide the outreach which will be needed to sustain the life of the Church. Pope Francis has invited every parish, every diocese and the whole Church to engage in what he calls “,The Synodal Path”, in preparation for the Synod of Bishops in 2023. Synodality comes from the Greek and means “,walking together”,. Given the changed and changing landscape in which the Church will have to live and work in the years to come, the Pope writes: “,What is under discussion at synodal gatherings are not the traditional truths of Christian doctrine. The Synod is concerned mainly with how teaching can be lived and applied to the changing contexts of our time”,. This will be a challenge and opportunity for us all, not least as we see the changing face of our own parishes. Challenging for our schools, also, not least as they adjust to Welsh Government legislation on the teaching of RE and RSE. We are blessed to have dedicated CARDIFF p19-66_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:04 Page 22

23 colleagues representing the Catholic view of life and love as the new curriculum is being developed. It is likely that our school governors, heads, teachers and pupils will need to articulate their commitment to Catholic teaching and spirituality in the more difficult circumstances that lie ahead. The significant reduction in parish and diocesan income will undoubtedly impact on the life of the Church locally and nationally for many years to come. All of these issues have to be faced against, perhaps, the greatest challenge of our time. Climate Change, Global Warming, Care of Creation. These realities are facing us immediately, not least in the extraordinary changes in weather patterns which are being experienced throughout the world. Pope Francis articulated the duty and privilege of the need to care for creation in his encyclical “,Laudato Si”,. In many ways, events have already overtaken us with fire, wind, torrential rains, flooding and so many other natural disasters. Governments will have their own initiatives and impose new patterns of behaviour in order to reduce the carbon footprint of every individual. This will no doubt cause irritation and inconvenience –, and expense. The implications will be felt by churches, schools and parishes as well as private homes. There is no way at this stage in human history we can avoid the injunction “,Live Simply that others may simply live”,. The expected attendance of Pope Francis at the Cop 26 meeting in Glasgow will add urgency to his prophetic words which he wrote in the encyclical “,Laudato Si”, and many other sermons, speeches and writings since then. The year 2021 has undoubtedly been a time of crisis for all. Yet all know there are two meanings to that word. One is a description of disaster. The other means an opportunity. The Holy Spirit is undoubtedly urging us all to embrace the opportunity to proclaim in word and action Psalm 149: Praise the Lord. Sing to the Lord a new song, His praise in the assembly of the faithful. Let everything that breathes Praise the Lord. +George Stack Archbishop of Cardiff CARDIFF p19-66_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:04 Page 23

75 CARDIFF OBITUA RIES FR. AMBROSE WALSH Fr. Ambrose Walsh died peacefully on Thursday 12 November at the Marie Curie Hospice, Holme Tower, Penarth, following a short illness. He was born in Cardiff on 24 January 1938 in Cardiff and remained a faithful Cardiffian all his life. Faithful also to his sisters and extended family to whom we offer sympathy and prayers for the repose of his soul. Educated at St. Illtyd’,s College, Cardiff, he then trained in what is now the Royal Welsh college of Music and Drama. Following two years national Service in the RAF, he spent a year at Belmont Abbey, Hereford. Ambrose then applied to the Archdiocese of Cardiff and studied for the priesthood at the English college, Valladolid, Spain. He was ordained priest at St. Mary’,s Canton on 28 May 1966. Following ordination he undertook a number of parochial appointments. He became parish priest of Our Lady, Queen of the Universe, Llanishen, in 1974 and was the driving force behind the building of the newly re-named church and parish of Christ the King which opened in 1978. There followed a number of appointments including Holy Cross, Swansea, St. Benedict, Sketty and St. David, Cwmbran. His final appointment was as parish priest of St. Dyfrig’,s Treforest in 1987 until he retired through ill health in the year 2000. During his priestly ministry he also served in a number of important capacities in the Diocese, including secretary to the Archbishop, secretary of the Senate of Priests, Chair of the Liturgy Committee and Dean of North Gwent. Ambrose Walsh was an educated and cultured man whose love of the music of Elgar was well known. He also had an immense gift for friendship. His wide circle of friends will testify to his capacity to keep in touch with them in meaningful ways over a long time and great distance. A prolific author, he used his literary skills in publishing a number of works of theology and pastoral practice based on his experience and involvement with the life of the Charismatic Movement within the Church. As a regular and articulate correspondent to The Tablet and other media outlets, he was thoughtful and insightful in his views of contemporary culture and the place of the Church in the world. May he Rest in Peace. FR. MICHAEL RONAN Michael Ronan was born on 29 August 1951 in Maesteg, the son of Thomas and Eileen Ronan. He was born into a close knit family and these bonds remained important to him throughout his life. His primary education took place at Our Lady and St. Patrick’,s Primary School in Maesteg. He completed his secondary education at St. Joseph’,s comprehensive School, Port Talbot. Having left school, he undertook training as a graphic artist,having qualified, worked in that area for six years. Following that experience,his career changed direction and he trained as a psychiatric nurse p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:01 Page 75

76 CARDIFF in Bridgend for three years.During these years he acted as Regional President of the Young Christian Workers in South Wales. In 1977 he offered himself to the Archdiocese of Cardiff for the priesthood and began his studies at St. Peter’,s College, Wexford in the autumn of that year. He was ordained priest in his home parish church by Archbishop Ward on 8 December 1985. There followed a series pf parochial apointments: St. Mary, Merthyr Tydfil (1986- 1990) St. Mary’,s Dinas Powys (1990-1997) and finally St. Gabriel’,s, Ringland (1997-2002). During this time he also cared for the two churches in Caerleon: St. Julius, Aaron and David together with St. Julius the Martyr. He served as Dean of Newport in 2011. Having suffered ill health for a number of years, he retired in 2018 to a house in his beloved Maesteg. Michael exercised his ministry as a priest for 35 years. He had his own unique style and sense of humour. In a self deprecating way he cultivated a ‘,hang dog’, and, in his own words, enjoyed a good moan about matters of the day both personal and public. Many individuals can speak of his generous spirit and goodness of heart. He was admitted to the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, where he died on 2 November 2020 supported by members of his family. His funeral will take place on 25 November 2020, followed by cremation at Coychurch Crematorium. His ashes will be buried in the grave of his parent in the cemetery at Maesteg May he Rest in Peace. CANON PADDY DALY Patrick Daly was born in in County Wexford in 1923. He studied for the priesthood at St. Peter’,s College, Wexford and was ordained priest for the Archdiocese of Cardiff on 5th June 1949. His first appointments took him as curate to SS Gabriel and Raphael in Tonypandy, and then on to St. Francis, in Ely. In 1958 he took up his first appointment as Parish Priest in St. Mary’,s, Chepstow, where he was responsible for the supervision of the building of the new church, followed by St. Dyfrig’,s, Treforest, and St. David’,s, Newport. In 1986 he came to All Hallows in Llantrisant, where he was again charged with the responsibility of building a new church, hall and presbytery. This task was duly completed and the present church buildings at Miskin are a testament to his dedication and skill in creating “,something beautiful for God”, in the words of Mother Teresa. They are also his enduring legacy, and a measure of his vision and foresight. Patrick Daly also held various diocesan appointments: notably in the field of Catholic Education, and as Dean in two Deaneries where he served. He was a Canon of the Cathedral Chapter, and became Provost of the Cathedral Chapter in 1990. He was also a Trustee of the Archdiocese of Cardiff. Canon Daly always kept in close touch with his family in Ireland. In 2015 he transferred to a nursing home in Gorey, Co.Wexford, where he died on 28th Feb 2021 aged 97yrs. Patrick Daly was a priest for almost 72 years. He was above all a “,people person”, and during the course of his ministry he gave outstanding service to all those committed to his pastoral care. May he Rest in Peace. p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:01 Page 76

Seven years later he made his first Reconciliation, Holy Communion and Confirmation in same church all in the same year. In 1956 he entered St. Patrick’,s Seminary Carlow to study for the priesthood and was ordained for this diocese on 9th June 1962. Ray was a very popular priest and committed himself fully to his ministry here in South Wales Ray served in a number of parishes as assistant before becoming parish priest of St. Mary’,s Abertillery 1967.

He was quite a show man especially when he entertained school children with his magic shows. He was a member of the Magic Circle. Ray moved to St. Cuthbert, Cardiff in 1971 serving as chaplain to the prison. He took this mission very seriously and helped many of the prisoners to recover their dignity and self-respect. He had the knack of recognising when people were in need or required support and he was very generous with his time and money. He also helped Father Chris Delaney with the soup runs feeding the needy in Cardiff city centre. In 1978 the Archbishop moved him to Dinas Powys to serve the people and to be Chaplain to Llandough Hospital. Ray loved attending the sick and comforting the bereaved. He had a special charism for the sick and nothing was too much where they were concerned. In 1985 he was appointed to St. Mary’,s Bridgend but after two years moved to St. Joseph’,s Aberdare. He enjoyed his time there and felt a real connection with the people. They were happy days. Finally, he moved to Christ the King, Cardiff in 1994 but as his health deteriorated from a heart condition he gave up parish responsibilities and served as assistant in St. David’,s Cathedral for 10 years but took time out to act as chaplain on various Cunard World cruises which he thoroughly enjoyed. He retired fully in 2012 to live in Whitchurch, Cardiff. Fr Ray had a deep personal devotion to Our Lady going on pilgrimage to Lourdes with HCPT and, at the start of his Requiem, HCPT arranged for a candle to be lit at The Grotto.

He also served as chaplain general to the Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem and chaplain of the English order of St. John’,s affiliated to St. John’,s Ambulance Cadets.

His Requiem was celebrated in St Brigid’,s, Cardiff and, on the way to the Crematorium, the hearse stopped at Christ the King parish where approximately a hundred parishioners had assembled for prayers. May he rest in peace. p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:01 Page 77

89 St Vincent’,s Community Centre An exciting partnership between the Archdiocese of Cardiff, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, the Parishes of St. Francis Ely, St. Mary’,s Canton and Holy Family Fairwater has resulted in the creation of “,ST. VINCENT’,S CO MMUN ITY CENTRE, ELY BRIDGE”,. This will be housed in the former church of St. Clare which has been transformed into a place where members of the local community will find shelter and support in these increasingly challenging times. The initiative began at the suggestion of members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at St. Mary’,s Canton, together with numerous volunteers from St. Mary’,s and Holy Family parish. They were involved in the running of a night shelter at St. Mary’,s Hall as part of a shared Ecumenical project with other churches across Cardiff. This project has been so successful for clients and volunteers alike and provided food and a safe bed to the homeless during the cold months of the winter. The appeal for volunteers to help in this work resulted in a response right across the age range. It is viewed by all involved as a concrete means of putting faith into practice in helping relieve a very severe social problem. The issues of social deprivation, food poverty and mental health are widespread and need to be addressed at every level of society. “,Prevention is better than cure”, goes the old saying, and the recognition of the need of support for the poor, the hungry, the lonely and those who are dispossessed both physically and spiritually lies at the heart of this new initiative. The proposal that the former St. Clare’,s Church in Ely might become a Vincentian Community Centre in the west of Cardiff was supported wholeheartedly by the Archdiocese of Cardiff and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. It was also welcomed by clergy, headteachers and local counciIIors, pIus Mark Drakeford SM and Kevin Brennan. Most significantly, it has been welcomed by local people who felt there would be great benefit in having a community support centre in lower Ely. This would complement other work already being carried out in the surrounding area. The National Officials of the SVP joined with the local SVP group and the Archdiocese of Cardiff in making this vision a reality. Phase one of the project has seen a major refurbishment of the building and the whole site in order to conform to Health and Safety legislation. It has also laid the foundations for future development. Phase 2 is currently engaged in the provision of a kitchen, a café, area, a food bank, computer training room, children’,s’, play area etc., Phase 3 will hopefully provide a drop in facility and rooms that can be used for training, counselling, and other activities. There is also the possibility of another SVP shop alongside those which already operate successfully in different parts of the diocese.

90 CARDIFF The SVP has recently funded the appointment of a Professional Manager. Nathan Harding took up his post in August 2021 and will be responsible for servicing the project with a team of volunteers. The nucleus of support from the local parishes will continue, but the need for volunteers from other parishes across the city and the wider community will ensure the successful expansion of this work. The Vincentian Charism will inspire and sustain this work of the Gospel.

91 CARDIFF For some 900 years Our Lady of Penrhys has been venerated at Penrhys In the year 1179 Cistercian Monks founded Llantarnum Abbey near Malpas in Newport. Lands bequeathed to the monks extended to the Rhondda Valley where Penrhys is situated and it divides both valleys the Rhondda Fawr (Great)and the Rhondda Fach (Little). The monks built a grange at Penrhys, and formed a community there. They worked on the land, ministered to the local people as well as the many pilgrims who came to Penrhys. A statue of our Lady believed to be very beautiful, was found and placed in a shrine within the church, nearby was a Holy Well ( Ffynnon Fair) which people claimed had miraculous qualities, and became a great centre of devotion for the next 300 years. On 14th September 1538 on Cromwells orders the ancient and revered wooden statue of the virgin and child made from a oak tree, was removed and it was taken to London to be publicly burnt along with Walsingham, Doncaster, Ipswich and others including Our Lady of the Taper, Cardigan, and all lands around Penrhys where the monks worked all disappeared. However, people still visited and prayed to our Lady. In1912 excavations were carried out which unearthed pieces of glass, tiles, and timbers were found. A church was then built at Ferndale approx 2 miles away thanks to the kind generosity of Miss M M Davies from Llantrisant. She also procured a beautiful carved Oak replica of the ancient statue of PENRHYS, and had it placed in the church in Ferndale. When the church closed on Easter Sunday the statue was transferred to St Gabriel and Sr Raphael church TONYPANDY, this beautiful work of art can be still seen on display in the church in TONYPANDY. It was at this time, in 1939, that the Rhondda Borough Council, on whose land the Holy Well was situated, took upon themselves to preserve the historical building, and put up railings around the building for the first time. It was at this time that the ground where the statue is situated, was given to Archbishop Mostyn for the Archdiocese of Cardiff, by Miss M M Davies. The Pilgrimages continued to come, even although there was no statue. The present statue was officially erected and blessed on the site itself, by Archbishop McGrath on the 2nd July, 1953. It had been designed to resemble as near as possible the description of the original statue, found in a Medieval Welsh poetry book, and carved from Portland Stone. The first pilgrimage was attended by 20-25,000 people, such numbers were too large and so future pilgrimages were curtailed. Since then many pilgrims have gone to pray at the shrine and the Holy Well either as groups or as individuals. Every year on the Feast of the Assumption, the Deanery of Our Lady of PENRHYS has Mass at the shrine, and is well attended. We feel very privileged to have such a special place of pilgrimage in our Deanery and Diocese as we continue to be part of the 900 year old devotion to OUR LADY OF PENRHYS Prayer GOD OUR FATHER,WE GATHER TOGETHER,IN FAITH AND IN LOVE, AROUND THIS ANCIENT SHRINE, OF OUR LADY OF PENRHYS, DEDICATED TO MARY, THE MOTHEROF YOUR SON, MAY THE PRAYER OF MARY, FIND AN ECHO, IN THE LIFE AND HEART, OF EACH ONE HERE PRESENT, THE LORD HAS DONE MARVELS FOR ME. HOLY IS HIS NAME. AS YOUR SPIRIT OVERSHADOWED MARY, SO MAY WE BE GIVEN COURAGE TO GLORIFY YOU, IN EVERYTHING WE SAY AND DO AND ARE . THROUGH CHRIST OUR LORD.

92 CARDIFF Two teachers retire from St Patrick’,s Cardiff Question: “,Who made you?”, Answer: “, God made me.”, Question: “, Why did God make you?”, Answer: “, God made me to Know Him, to Love Him, to Serve Him in this life and to be happy with Him forever in the next”, Questions and answers from the old ‘,Penny Catechism’,, I hear you say. I remember my first teacher at St Joseph’,s Primary School in Neath, Miss Moran asking the questions. How we remember our teachers, some good and some bad. Teachers have played an important role in forming us, giving us the foundation on which we build our future lives. I wish to mention two teachers who have recently retired. Two teachers who I consider to have been ‘,Good Catholic Teachers’,. Mary Taylor ended her teaching career after 43 years at St Patrick’,s Grangetown and Tony Burton, again from St Patrick’,s after 21 years. Hundreds of children have been taught by Mary who showed dedication and commitment. She has a lively and living Faith, based upon the Gospel, the Good News. This she shared with the children and their families, so through service and humility started them on their journey of Faith. Others have encountered her at Lourdes. She travelled for over 50 years with the Welsh National Pilgrimage and with a gentle touch of the hand and an encouraging word, comforted many a sick pilgrim. By adoption she’,s a ‘,St Pat’,s Girl’,, but was born and still lives in Penarth, attending both St Pat’,s and St Joseph’,s Penarth. Tony, like Mary lived his Faith with a gentle smile and a song in his heart. Born and proud to come from the old Rosminian Parish of St Alban’,s Cardiff he was and still is a talented musician. Tony for many years played with the St Alban’,s Band, sadly no longer playing at the Arms Park on International Days. These two will be sadly missed, but served ‘,Jesus the Teacher’, for many years. This was a true vocation accepting the call of the Lord to follow and “, Go out to the whole world and teach all peoples.”, Rev Canon Michael Evans, Parish Priest, St Patrick’,s, Cardiff Mary Taylor p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:02 Page 92

93 CARDIFF Appointment of a new Chaplain to Cardiff University Archbishop George Stack appointed Fr. Nicholas Williams Catholic Chaplain at the University of Cardiff in succession to Fr. Sebastian Jones. The appointment took effect in September 2021. Fr. Sebastian was appointed chaplain by Archbishop Peter Smith on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady, 8 December 2009. He was the first Catholic chaplain in the role of Co-ordinating Chaplain at Cardiff University. A member of the Ethics Committee of the University, he also worked closely with the University’,s Student Support Services. Fr.

94 CARDIFF Generations of students have good reason to be grateful for the dedication and ministry of Fr. Sebastian as their chaplain over the last thirteen years. Fr. Nicholas Williams will be able to build on the legacy he has inherited and take the chaplaincy forward in these new and challenging circumstances of university life. Fr. Sebastian Jones writes: “,I warmly welcome the appointment of Fr. Nicholas Williams as Catholic Chaplain to the University of Cardiff. He will bring the same dedication and enthusiasm to the chaplaincy as he displayed when he re-founded the CathSoc at the University of Portsmouth. I give thanks to God for the years of ministry at Cardiff University. They have been a precious time to me. I thank all the outstanding staff and students who have supported and contributed to the life and witness of the chaplaincy during that time. I particularly wish to record my thanks to Mr. Ben Lewis who is responsible for the provision of chaplaincy and the University and for his tireless work for the welfare of students.”, Fr. Nicholas Williams writes: “,I am grateful to the Archbishop for appointing me Catholic Chaplain at the University of Cardiff, my home city. I feel privileged to be entrusted with the sacred duty of caring and accompanying the students in their journey of Christian faith and discipleship and in providing for their sacramental lives. My experience of chaplaincy comes from my time at the University of Portsmouth when the re- establishment of the CathSoc was in response to the critical need for students not only to gain their academic credentials, but also emerge as well formed young people, knowledgeable about their faith and its practice. I thank Fr. Sebastian for the legacy he has handed on to me through his work as chaplain. I look forward to building on the foundations which he has laid.”, p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:02 Page 94

95 CARDIFF Re-discovering our foundations …, by Fr. Michael Doyle In these present times we may be forgiven for forgetting our past and being concerned about our future. However, a recent discovery at St. Mary’,s church in Newport reminds us that there is “,nothing new under the sun”,. When one of the steps behind the high altar recently gave way, we were surprised to discover an 8- 10 foot drop underneath the church. As we took hold of a torch to ‘,shine light on the subject’, it became evident that under our feet was a passageway with arches. Looking back on the history of the church to find out more about our discovery, we found that under the sanctuary lay Fr. John Bernadine Davison O.S.F. who succumbed to the typhus fever epidemic affecting the city in 1842 –, a reminder in our present day that there is “,nothing new under the sun”,! If, as suggested by a recent BBC headline “,Studying history is the ultimate passport to the future”,, how can we not delve further into the second layer of St. Mary’,s church? Following a recent visit by an architect who specialises in historic buildings it seems there are grounds for both excitement and further investigations. Having ventured ‘,into the crypt’, the initial report suggests that throughout the length of the building there are a series of chambers. From one vantage point the architect could see a series of archways passing under the north aisle and measured the distance as 16 meters in length. Immediately under the Sanctuary, the burial point of Fr. Davison, there is a chamber 5.75 meters in length with evidence of more archways branching in the direction of the side aisles. We are unable to venture further at this time as rubble covers our access points. But it has been noted that some of the more immediate archways are obviously designed as doorways with evidence of lintel supports. The question now remains: is this structure part of the build of St. Mary’,s, or did it exist before the church was built? The present St. Mary’,s church is the second church on the site to carry the dedication, the first being constructed in 1812. With the surge of immigrants from Ireland, the original church had to be replaced so the present church was commissioned in 1837 and opened in 1840. Could what lay underneath the present be the first St. Mary’,s church? Or perhaps we have discovered Newport’,s own scavi given its Roman foundations. The imagination could run wild at this point! What we do know is that there is a lot of excitement about this find both in the parish and in the professionals who have visited the site thus far. We may not see much at this present time, but we must look to the past to inform our future so further investigations will take place. Be assured we will share our journey of discovery as work progresses. In our research we also discovered that a memorial plaque in the Lady Chapel commemorates the burial place of Mr. Joseph Beaumont who helped facilitate the building of the present church in 1839. This means that we have now discovered at least two people who have had a significant impact on the Church and her presence in Newport in the past 200 years, how many more lie in “,The Fields Beneath”, to quote the evocative title of Gillian Tindall’,s seminal book? We add them to our history along with saints such as St. David Lewis and Ss. Julius and Aaron to re-discover our foundations both physically and spiritually helping to firm up the foundations of the Church in Newport for many more years to come. p67-98_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 09/11/2021 14:02 Page 95

10 0 FOREWORD The year 2021 will surely be remembered as one when the certainties of the past have been shaken to their roots. Every facet of life has been affected by the COVID pandemic and the second lockdown. Like every other institution, the Church in Menevia has had to make adjustments in order to deal with the crisis situation and plan for a post COVID Church. During this year, pastoral life continued as much as possible, despite restrictions imposed by Government to limit the spread of the virus. In the latter part of the year our churches gradually re-opened to welcome worshippers, albeit in reduced numbers. Gradually Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmation, Weddings and Funerals have been re-introduced, although limited by reduced numbers attending. Average attendance at Mass is currently 40% of our regular congregations. This inevitably has an impact on the dynamic and viability of some parishes, not least in terms of finance. The innovation of Live Streaming Mass and other services and devotions has been a boon to the elderly and housebound and has been a means of evangelisation to those who are merely curious about the life of the Church. The Directory and Year Book of the Catholic Province of Cardiff, Menevia, Wrexham and Herefordshire provides a record of the memorable events in the Diocese of Menevia as well as recording the challenges and difficulties of the past year. In January, the Holy Name Church in Fishguard marked the centenary of it’,s official opening. September marked the Golden Jubilee of the opening of the church of St. Theresa of Lisieux in Sandfields, Port Talbot. The parish of Our Lady of Margam celebrated two anniversaries in May, with the 70th anniversary MENEVIA p99-158_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:12 Page 100

101 of it’,s founding and the 30th anniversary of the consecration of the new church. The resumption of the annual open air Mass at Capel Mair, part of the old Cistercian Monastery at Margam, was attended by an appreciative congregation. The Legion of Mary celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving for the centenary of it’,s foundation at Sacred Heart Church, Morriston on 7 September. A special ecumenical service took place on 23 March outside Morriston Hospital, marking the 1st anniversary of lockdown and praying for staff and patients alike as well as remembering those who had died. Bishop Paul Mason of the Bishops Conference of England and Wales wrote to the Swansea Bay Health Board commending them for such a memorable and worthy event. The year concluded with the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of Bishop Emeritus Tom Burns ordination to the priesthood. Ad Multos Annos! This year marked the death of four priests in the Diocese of Menevia: Canon Richard Byron,Fr. Eric Wastell,Fr. Michael Fewell and Canon Seamus Cunnane. We give thanks for their dedicated service and faithful ministry over many years. We were delighted to welcome Fr. Gerald Isiguzo OP to the Diocese to join his Dominican confreres. In addition to continuing his studies at Swansea University, he will serve the parishes of Presteign,Knighton and Rhayader. Our seminarian, Gregory Beckett, continues his formation for the priesthood at St. Mary’,s College, Oscott. The Diocese of Menevia School of Evangelisation and Catechetics (D OMSEC) continued to provide valuable formation and support to both clergy and laity. Many of the presentations were livestreamed during the year with large audiences throughout the Diocese. Amongst the presentations were: Four Weeks with the Holy Spirit, The Spirit and Power of the Prophet Elijah,St. Thomas Aquinas on happiness and Virtue. Various talks on topics such as Bereavement, The Prayer of the church, The Sacramental Economy, Revelationof the Trinity in Genesis and Mary, the new Eve. The scriptures were explored in imaginative ways through subjects such as: Scriptural Spirituality, Prayer in the Bible, Biblical Explanation of the Mass, Elijah for the 21st Century, the Role of Women in Salvation History, Saul and Paul: A Story of Conversion. The 60th anniversary of the inauguration of the Second Vatican Council was marked by a series of symposia, live streamed lectures and celebrations between October and December. Meeting of the clergy with the Archbishop at Carmarthen in September included preparations for the forthcoming Synod of Bishops on the Synodal Life of the Church. Pope Francis is anxious that every parish and Diocese be involved in a Listening process and share their reflection with the Synod Office in Rome in preparation for the Synod of Bishops on the subject of a Listening Church. This will be the one of the main priorites for the Diocese of Menevia in the year that lies ahead. +George Stack Metropolitan Archbishop of Cardiff Apostolic Administrator –, Diocese of Menevia MENEVIA p99-158_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:12 Page 101

15 2 OBITUA RIES CANON RICHARD BYRON RIP Canon Richard Byron passed away peacefully at Singleton Hospital Swansea after a short illness on 21st April 2021. His funeral Mass took place in St Joseph`s Cathedral Swansea at 10.30am on Wednesday 5th May and was followed by his burial in Morriston Cemetery, Swansea, Canon Byron was born in Coventry, but a few weeks after his birth the family moved back to Wexford before settling in Brackile and Nicker. He attended Brackile and Doon schools before taking up a job in a pub in Dublin. Canon Byron later trained for the priesthood at Mount Melleray, and St. Peter’,s College Wexford. He was ordained to the priesthood for the Archdiocese of Cardiff on 4th June 1961, and his priestly life was spent serving the people of the Archdiocese of Cardiff and of Menevia. His first appointment was as an assistant at St. Brigid’,s Cardiff and then the Blessed Sacrament, Rumney, before serving for five years at Our Lady of Lourdes, Townhill, Swansea. His first parish as parish priest was at St. Mary’,s Monmouth. From there Canon Byron moved to St. Robert’,s Aberkenfig where he spent ten years before moving to St. Joseph’,s Neath and finally to St. David and St. Patrick’,s Haverfordwest. On his retirement Canon Byron became Chaplain to Stella Maris Convent. Amongst other positions he was a Canon of the Cathedral Chapter, School Representative on the Local Education Authority, Diocesan Trustee, and liaison Officer for the sick and retired clergy of the diocese. FR. ERIC WASTELL RIP Of your Charity please pray for the repose of the soul of Fr. Eric Wastell who passed away on 4th May 2021. His Requiem Mass was held on Tuesday 18th May at St Joseph’,s Cathedral, Swansea. Father Wastell was aged 70 when he was ordained a Catholic priest. At the time he provided a brief note on his life until then. He wrote: `I was baptised in the Anglican Parish Church of Christ Church, Swansea, according to the register, some ten days before I was born in 1933. It is thought that the aged vicar may have confused the name of the month and I am deemed to have been baptised some twenty days after I was born. But of my baptism there is not a shadow of a doubt. I then passed the following years being reared and immersed in `anglo catholicism`. After doing A levels at Dynevor School there came the rude awakening of National Service where I discovered the gusting winds of low church and broad church and no church and Roman Catholicism with a steady Irish breeze. On being `demobbed` I retreated to the docile atmosphere of Carmarthen and Trinity College. Then on to one of the most colourful areas of Swansea where in Mayhill school I taught disadvantaged children with learning difficulties. Four more years and I was moved on, probably by the Holy Spirit, to St. Michael`s Anglican theological college in Llandaff to train for the ministry and then on to my first curacy and the delights of yet another colourful part of Swansea, Oystermouth. After three years or so, I was off to the missions and the riches of tropical life in the West Indies.

15 3 MENEVIA fish in a very small pond and then the summons back once again to Swansea this time to be Vicar of St Gabriels for the next 25 years. Meanwhile much was changing in Anglican circles and I was being increasingly drawn to Roman Catholicism with everything it has to offer and everything it has lived through two thousand years and more. And on the feast of the Immaculate Conception 1998 I was ready to be received into the Catholic Church by Bishop Mullins. From there I began my preparation for the Diaconate and was ordained Deacon by Bishop Mark on Low Sunday 2003. On the 13th September 2003, feast of St John Chrysostom, Bishop Mark ordained me priest of the Diocese at the Cathedral Church of St Joseph. Among the many Diocesan priests concelebrating the Mass were also three former Anglicans, Fr John Brophy, Westminster, Fr Timothy Ford, Birmingham Diocese and Fr Dan Williams, my Parish priest of Sketty. …,. I felt proud to be able to offer my first Mass at Sketty the following day, Sunday, the Feast of the Holy Cross, in the presence of a packed Church which included my family and friends and to be assisted by my three former Anglican friends’,. In his final years Fr. Westall was priest in residence at Stella Maris in Swansea. FR. MICHAEL FEWELL RIP Fr Michael Fewell died peacefully at Morriston Hospital, Swansea, on Monday 5th July 2021 at the age of 76 years. His Requiem Mass was held on July at St Joseph’,s Cathedral, Swansea. Fr. Fewell trained for the priesthood at the Claretian Major Seminary, Highcliffe on Sea which he entered in 1961 and then at Heythrop Pontifical Athenaeum, Oxfordshire. Following his ordination by Cardinal Heenan at Hayes in Middlesex in 1969 he served as a curate at the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Hayes. Seven years later Fr Fewell was appointed to the Centre for Parish Catechetics, Westminster. In 1983 Fr Fewell was elected as Provincial Superior of the Claretian Missionaries, a position he held for six years. This was followed by his appointment as Director of the St Claret Retreat and Conference Centre at Bickden in Cambridgeshire. In 1995 Fr Fewell returned to the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish in Hayes as its pastor, and served there until 2002. In 2002 Fr Fewell moved to Menevia becoming parish priest of Blessed Sacrament, Gorseinon, where he served until 2014. Fr. Fewell then served as pastor to St. Teilo’,s and St. Bride’,s Parish of Tenby and Saundersfoot for four years before moving to Swansea in late 2018 where he retired due to ill health. When in Menevia in Fr Fewell left the Claretians and was incardinated into the Diocese. He served as Vicar for Religious. Fr Fewell was an ardent supporter of the work of the KSC and during his time in Hayes had the role of Provincial Chaplain to the Knights. When he moved to Tenby he saw the raising of a new KSC council and became Provincial Chaplain. p99-158_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:12 Page 153

154 MENEVIA BROTHER TEILO REES OF CALDEY ISLAND: March 31, 1931 - September 20, 2021. Our Brother Teilo’,s life can be summarised in one single word that he used so often, ‘,Wonderful’,. This expression was not just a word, it contained his whole life. When Teilo expressed this wonderful word he really meant it.It came from his heart, it radiated in his eyes and you could feel it in the way he pressed our hands. Brother Teilo was born in Carmarthen, and he was always very proud (and rightly so!) to identify himself with Wales and everything Welsh - but nevertheless...Teilo had in so many ways a very English upbringing as he went to Harrow School and to Cambridge, and before he entered the Abbey on Caldey he lived comfortably near Kew Gardens. His deep sense of culture prevented him from becoming a nationalist. Teilo was in so many ways the embodiment of authentic humanness. His language skills enabled him to become connected and to remain connected with so many people from all continents. You name it - French, German, Italian, Latin and Greek, Spanish, Turkish, Russian...for him it was not a show-off but he knew that through the language he could pursue his heart’,s desire. He always yearned for meaning. You could see him avidly reading the Sacred Scriptures, the Revelations of Divine Love by Julian of Norwich...but also Lord Byron (he knew e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g about him!) and the Inspector Morse novels by Colin Dexter, whom he knew in person when he studied in Cambridge. And yet, whilst cherishing all these treasures, the heart of Brother Teilo yearned for Wales, he yearned for simplicity, he longed for the monastic life in Wales, and one day he knocked on our door, and he kept knocking with great determination because he was aware that his age was not entirely in his favour. Or was it? Yes, in fact it was utterly in his favour as his heart was fully alive and committed from the very outset. ‘,The brother who is simply content with what he finds in the monastery should be received for as long a time as he wishes,’, says Saint Benedict in the Rule. It is without any doubt that our Brother Teilo has been content exactly where he was, day-by-day, among his brothers, in sacred reading, in silent prayer and helping the brothers with doing the chores within the monastic household. Life was always ‘,Wonderful’, to him, and that could only be so as his whole being was filled to the brim with wonder. May his wonder continue to shine on all and each of us!

15 5 CANON SEAMUS CUNNANE RIP Canon Seamus Cunnane died peacefully at his home Caer Maria, Cardigan on Wednesday, 6th October 2021, aged 92 years. Canon was the beloved brother of Joan and brother-in-law Pat. He was predeceased by his sisters Kathleen, Una, Maria and his brother Frank and his dear friend and housekeeper Joan Pemberton. Canon Seamus’,s body was received into the Church of Our Lady of the Taper, Cardigan on Friday 15th October 2021. His Requiem Mass was celebrated on Saturday 16th October 2021 and was followed by burial at Cardigan Town Cemetery. Canon Cunnane was born in Ireland, and was educated by the Christian Brothers at Carlow before studying for the priesthood at All Hallows Seminary in Dublin. He obtained a BA degree in Philosophy with first class honours. Canon Cunnane was ordained for the Diocese of Menevia on 12th June 1955, serving at Bangor between 1955 and 1 959, Rhyl 1959 to 1960, returning to Bangor 1960 to 1962. He was then asked to go to Cardigan Parish in 1962, it was a parish he would serve for the next 37 years, and in which he would spend his retirement. At Cardigan a great challenge lay ahead. The Late Archbishop Ward said of him “,he worked tirelessly to bring a scattered parish of peoples with diverse backgrounds together. He gathered in some of the flock that had lost their way. He believed that the priest should be part of everyone’,s family and constantly visited their homes”,. To replace the old church in the Strand Canon Cunnane took on a huge financial project to fund raise for a new church and shrine - the church we have today, Our Lady of the Taper. This was consecrated in 1970 and became the National Shrine of Wales in 1986. Canon Seamus made many friends in Cardigan and immersed himself in many aspects of town life. He himself said of Cardigan people “,Cardigan people are the most generous of people, and the most generous hearted”, and he considered the community as his second family. His fluent Welsh gained him respect from the locals. He was a highly respected historian with a passionate and deep knowledge of the history of Cardigan and of the Diocese of Menevia. He wrote many articles about the history of the town in the medieval period and he was also the author of ‘,Our Lady of Cardigan a history and memoir’, printed in 2006. He was a member of Dyfed Archaeological Trust. He served as an adviser to the Cadwgan Trust, who spearheaded the huge public campaign to preserve the Castle for future generations. He gave talks and lectures to various groups on the history of the area and Catholicism in relation to Wales. The civic trust in Cardigan , Cymdeithas Aberteifi, recorded interviews with him which are being transcribed. He was an expert chess player. As one friend said of him ",I shed tears for you, Seamus, the likes of you we are rarely privileged to know.", May they Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory p99-158_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:12 Page 155

15 6 FR LIAM BRADLEY APPOINTED LEAD CHAPLAIN TO DYFED-POWYS POLICE FORCE. Fr Liam Bradley has recently been appointed as the lead chaplain to Dyfed- Powys Police Force. The chaplaincy service covers the whole force area and is delivered by 17 chaplains. Each chaplain comes from a faith community and is recognised as a minister within their particular denomination or faith. Some chaplains are based at local police stations while others are assigned to particular units, such as a firearms unit. All chaplains have a three-fold role within Dyfed-Powys Police. 1) They provide a listening ear and guidance to police officers and staff while bringing a faith context to such conversations. They offer spiritual support from an ecumenical and multi-faith perspective. 2) Chaplains contribute to policing by being a resource when faith communities and faith matters intersect with policing operations. They also foster links between the police and local communities to both shape the direction of policing, and to inform clergy and faith communities about policing matters. 3) Chaplains respond to major and critical incidents to support those attending distressing crime scenes, while working with local communities to aid cohesion and recovery. In addition to these responsibilities, Fr Liam has oversight of the chaplaincy team by coordinating recruitment, training days and deployment. With his licence studies in Moral Theology, he also sits on the Police Ethics Committee which meets regularly to answer ethical questions about policing policy and the real-life application of law and policing practice. From time to time Fr Liam is called to lead memorial services for deceased offices and staff, as well as leading Remembrance Day celebrations. He attends passing out parades of new recruits offering them encouragement and a blessing, and he’,s is present at Attestation Fr.

157 MENEVIA Ceremonies to witness officers swear their oaths of office as they assume new ranks and responsibilities. On his appointment, Fr. Liam said: “,Whilst I am sorry to stand down from the role of parish priest at Haverfordwest and Narberth, I give thanks for the joy of having served that community for the last seven years. The huge need for spiritual and pastoral support of those who work at the front line of our communities lies behind this appointment. My voluntary work with the police so far has taught me how much the police family values what chaplains have to give. I’,m offering my skills on behalf of the Catholic Church to those of all faiths and none”,. Temporary Chief Constable for Dyfed-Powys police Claire Parmenter said: “,We’,re delighted to welcome Fr Liam Bradley into the Dyfed-Powys Police family as the new force chaplain. Having previously worked as a chaplain for us in Pembrokeshire, Fr Liam has a great understanding of the role of a police chaplain and I look forward to working with him to support our officers and staff.”, As well as working three days a week for Dyfed-Powys Police, Fr Liam will continue as Chaplain to Withybush Hospital. In addition, he also takes up the role of supporting the nuns of Holy Cross Abbey at Whitland. Police Chaplains’, Prayer Lord, bless we pray all members of the Police Service, that we may honour our calling and serve those around us, upholding human rights and according equal respect to all. Inspire us to standards of fairness, integrity, diligence and impartiality worthy of our calling, that our actions might always be just, our motives pure and tempered with compassion, and that we may walk with humility with you. Give us strength and wisdom to protect the weak and vulnerable, and champion the cause of the innocent, protect us from harm, and in your mercy let peace reign in our country.

15 8 SR URSZULA ANNA WYRWA CELEBRATES HER SOLEMN PROFESSION AT HOLY CROSS ABBEY WHITLAND, 13TH NOVEMBER 2020 The Feast of All Saints Who Followed The Rule of St Benedict A Call Within The Call Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit to Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance (SSpS to OCSO) Planning for the great day was complicated by the Covid restrictions. Dom Joseph (Father Immediate) and Fr Mateusz from Mount Saint Bernard arrived at 9.30am on Friday 13th November 2020. At 11am Dom Joseph &, Fr Mateusz concelebrated Mass at Holy Cross Abbey Whitland, where Sr Urszula known as Usia made her Solemn Profession. Sadly there we were unable to have any guests. M. Christine Wood asked Sr Usia to make her petition, then she read aloud her vows before signing them and placing them on the altar. Sr Usia sung the ‘,Suscipe’, in Latin, Ps 118, ‘,Sustain me, Lord, by Your word and I shall live, let my hope not be in vain.’, Sung three times by Sr Usia and repeated by the community. Sr Usia then prostrates for the Litany of the saints and the Solemn Prayers of Blessing. The ceremony was beautiful and simple, the festive lunch was delicious. We shared news of the two communities, Sr Usia was invited to cut the cake and she gave a beautiful speech. The whole day was wonderful. Due to the Coronavirus restrictions we were unable to invite Sr Usia’,s family from Poland or friends, we hope when it is possible we will have a big celebration. Don Joseph and Fr Mateusz left on Saturday to return to MSB. Sr Usia entered Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit (SSpS) Polish Province. Prior to joining the Whitland community she spent seven years as a Missionary sister in Zambia. Deo Gratias MENEVIA p99-158_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:12 Page 158

Foreword If 2022 is to be anything it is to be a ‘,year of hope’,. P. Francis wrote in the Encyclical Fratelli Tutti, his expressed concern and a hope that remains up - permost in his thoughts: “,Once this health crisis passes, our worst response would be to plunge even more deeply into feverish consumerism and new forms of egotistic self-preservation. God willing, after all this, we will think no longer in terms of ‘,them’, and ‘,those’,, but only ‘,us’,”, (No. 35). The coronavirus pandemic has caused a crisis in our health care systems, disruption to our children’,s and young people’,s education, inse - curity to family income and employment, a collapse of international aid to the world’,s poorest and most vulnerable, disarray in leadership by governments and rulers, and hanging over all of this is the added cloud of the degradation of the environment and the very threat to our world’,s survival. With all that we are experiencing today and as we realize how interconnected we all are, the common hope expressed by Saint Paul to the community in Ephesus: “,There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism”, (Eph 4:4-5), is our goal and achievement. As I look back over the past year, I must begin by putting on record our gratitude to health and social care staff in our hospitals and homes who have continued to give their service and, in some cases lives in the most extraordinary and selfless manner. Teachers too who have continued to bring knowledge, education and wisdom to our young in innovative and creative ways. The other frontline workers who have continued to provide the essentials to maintain a healthy, safe, secure and as far as possible sat - isfied life to us all are not forgotten, neither are the hundreds of volunteers who have brought food, comfort, consolation, and companionship to those in any need. Each in their own way have shown that the Lord is close to his people. The year began rather as 2020 had closed with the gradual easing of restrictions not least as the vaccination programme was rolled out and for many the practice of regular testing and for others contact tracing, but our churches were open at least for the cel - ebration of the Mass but still with severe limitations on the number in a congregation, spacing and participation in the liturgy. This was most acutely and joyfully felt at Holy Week and Easter when at least the most sacred time in the Church’,s life was able to be celebrated publicly albeit with small numbers and with reduced liturgies. Two of the highlights of the year happened in the same week in July. At the beginning of the first week of July I was delighted to welcome HRH Prince Charles to the Shrine and Well of S. Winefride’,s for a personally chosen visit by him to our ancient and spiritually im - portant site of continuous pilgrimage and religious tradition for over thirteen hundred years. At the end of that same week I ordained Matthew Bond to the presbyterate –, ministry and priesthood in the Diocese. 16 0 WREXHAM p159-210_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:14 Page 160

161 From early summer and with many more of the COVID restrictions lifted the special Masses for different concerns and groups were able to be resumed. I was able to cel - ebrate the Mass around the time of the feast of S.Thomas for all involved in the legal profession and the administration of justice in England &, Wales. In September for a gathered group of Grandparents and the Elderly at Noddfa Convent on the first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly instituted by P. Francis in December 2020. In the autumn the pilgrimage Mass of S.Richard Gwyn, the Mass for Healthcare Workers which had a special relevance and then in November a Requiem Mass for all who had died with COVID since the outbreak of the pandemic. At the S. Richard Gwyn Pil - grimage Mass I launched the Diocesan participation in the 2021- 2023 Synod on Syn- odality which had been formally opened by P.Francis the previous Sunday in Rome. The overall theme is ",For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission",. The COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow in November occupied our thoughts and prayers, the issues of course continue to do so as each of us has a responsibility to live our lives in an environmentally responsible way. One of the many works of the Church in these countries that was curtailed by the pan - demic was the God Who Speaks project’,s events. The project itself continues with great enthusiasm and is recognised as being a significant contribution to letting the Bible inspire pastoral activity as called for in September 2020 in the Apostolic Exhor - tation Verbum Domini of P. Benedict XVI. Biblical resources and materials have con - tinued to be produced and made available. Many new Bible based prayer and study activities have sprung up as more and more people have discovered and become comfortable with using digital technology to communicate individually and in and with groups of other people. P. Francis returned to the central place of scripture in our lives in his message for the World Day for Grandparents &, the Elderly when he wrote: ‘,Let us try to read a page of the Gospel every day, to pray with the psalms, to read the prophets! We will be comforted by the Lord’,s faithfulness. The Scriptures will also help us to understand what the Lord is asking of our lives today. For at every hour of the day (cf. Mt 20:1-16) and in every season of life, he continues to send labourers into his vineyard. …, The Lord is always –, always –, close to us. He is close to us with new possibilities, new ideas, new consolations, but always close to us. You know that the Lord is eternal, he never, ever goes into retirement.’, (31st May 2021). Consoling words in these troubled times. With those thoughts turned into action we cannot but have the strength to build a better world and a stronger Church, to achieve the hopes of all humanity to provide and make more easily available access to food that nourishes us, housing, education, basic ser - vices, clean water and good health care for all and not just for a few privileged who can afford them, governments and leaders that prioritise people’,s needs over and above all other things, a better future for our children, and a secure future, free from fears, threats and anxieties for all as we go through life and age. I am immensely grateful to all who have actively helped in the mission of the Church - to bring the Gospel, its message of faith and hope, our liturgy and worship, and its meaning in action and care- digitally to peoples of our parishes under the restrictions imposed by coronavirus. So many of us have learnt of the opportunities that ‘,on-line’, has afforded and new skills to use those opportunities that at best are occasions of being able to communicate with each other and the world, but are no substitute for gathering as the body of Christ and the unity that that gathering provides and witnesses to our being church. Pope St John Paul II spoke of our amazement at the gift of the Mass and the abiding Presence of our Blessed Lord in the Sacrament of the Altar. Herein lies our treasure, enriching our relationship with Jesus and bringing together every aspect of our life and mission. It is the Eucharist, the celebration of the Mass, WREXHAM p159-210_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:14 Page 161

16 2 WREXHAM that makes the Church, and it is the Church, in the gift of the Holy Spirit, which makes the Eucharist. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the lifeblood of the Church. It requires our active participation and, to be fully celebrated, our physical presence. In these coming months we will work together to achieve that. As ever I am most grateful to all who have contributed to the compilation of this year’,s Directory and Yearbook especially in the difficult circumstances of restricted movement and access to churches that COVID-19 has created. Particular thanks go to the Curial staff who strive tirelessly to serve the Diocese and maintain the usefulness of this Prov - incial publication in print as well as to those who populate and monitor the digital face of the Diocese. In conjunction with the Diocesan website which grows as a source of up-to-date information and inspiration by the day, together -Yearbook and website- be - come more and more an arm of the Diocese’,s commitment to evangelisation. No pub - lication, no technology can do more than we ourselves in reading, re-reading and reading again the Gospels, living what we have learnt and sharing by proclamation with joy what we believe. I continue to pray for you, your families and our communities that 2022 be a year of peace, joy and blessing and I look forward to seeing you -as soon as the coronavirus restrictions permit- in your parishes and at all our Diocesan events to which you are of course entitled to attend without further invitation. , Peter Bishop of Wrexham p159-210_Welsh_2022.qxp_Layout 1 05/11/2021 08:14 Page 162
