Another session of Cawl A Chlonc was held on Thursady March 30th at St Peter’s Church. As this was the day of the Archdeacon’s visitation to our Ministry Area it was a great pleasure to have the company of Archdeacon Andrew and Philip Davies, a newly appointed officer in the diocese, for lunch.

It was also a great pleasure to celebrate the 90th birthday of Mrs Mary Lander, of one of our faithful supporters of Cawl a Chlonc. We are very grateful to her for bringing her birthday cake to share with us.

These sessions are proving to be very successful in bringing together those, who are visited at home by members of the pastoral team, to come together for a light lunch and a chat. I am very grateful to the team for  their dedication and generosity. The next ‘Cawl a Chlonc will be on June 1st
