May I take this oppoturning to wish you all a blessed, happy and holy Christmas.
May our new-born blessed saviour bless you all during this Christmas season.
Be assured of my prayers.
In Domino

Of your charity, pray for the repose of the soul of Rev Dom Antony Tumelty OSB who died on 27th August 2017 at 3.20pm at the age of 64.
Father Antony was professed a monk for 43 years and ordained to the sacred priesthood for 34 years.

He served as chaplain to the Poor Clares in Much Birch and also as the Chaplain to the armed forces. He will truly be missed by all who knew him.
During his life, Father Antony had a great devotion to our blessed Lady and to Saint John Kemble. Let us now pray to them to intercede for Father Antony.

May our blessed Lady,
Saint Michael,
Saint Joseph,
Saints Peter and Paul,
Saint Benedict,
Saints John Kemble and David Lewis
And all the Saints now pray for him to the Lord our God.

For a while now I have been contemplating to start a Juventutem group for the youth of the Archdiocese of Cardiff. I would now like to ask you if you or anyone you may know who does not receive our newsletter would be interested in establishing such a group. This would be a positive step for the youth of the Archdiocese of Cardiff and something we have never had. We have SVP, Legion of Mary, Guild of Saint Stephen, but nothing for the Extraordinary From…and the best news of all for a Catholic…it is FREE to join. If you do not know what the Juventutem international movement is or if you would like to find out more, please click here. If you are interested in helping to establish a group, please contact me by clicking here.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

In Domino

I know this post is a little later than expected, but nether the less it is still important

On Wednesday 2nd July at 6:30pm, Archbishop George Stack held the first ordination to the priesthood of a member of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in front of a strong congregation at St David’s Cathedral.

Rev. Bernard Sixtus was ordained to the Diaconate back in January and has since been working as the Diocesan Director of Religious Education for Schools. This ordination also marks the first priesthood ordination within the diocese in 7 years.

Among those present at the ceremony were Msgr Keith Newton, Ordinary of the Ordinariate, Fr Bernard’s Family and representatives from the Church in Wales parish Fr Bernard last served.

We wish Fr Bernard well as he continues his work within the diocese and takes on a pastoral role serving the parish of Usk.

Ad Multos Annos!


On Saturday 7th June 2014, the Committee of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales appointed both Marion Luscombe and Shaun Bennett as Assistant Representatives for Herefordshire.

I am looking forward to working with Marion and Shaun as we continue together supporting priests, parishes and our members for the promotion of the Traditional Roman Rite (Extraordinary Form) in the Archdiocese.

I will (with the help of God) continue to look after the rest of the Archdiocese.

To contact any of the representatives, go to our ‘Contact Us’ page.

Please keep us all in your prayers.
