Letter from Archbishop George!


Dear Parishioners of Merthyr Tydfil,

On Tuesday 1 March, the feast of St David, Fr Barry

English will be installed as a Canon of the Metropolitan

Cathedral of St David, Cardiff. The installation will

take place during the 12.00 noon Mass in the

Cathedral. His appointment as Canon is an

acknowledgement of his dedication and devotion as

your parish priest. It is also a recognition of the

importance of Merthyr Tydfil in the life of the

Archdiocese of Cardiff.

The Metropolitan Chapter was established in 1916 with

the establishment of the Archdiocese of Cardiff and the

Province of Wales. Between 1850 and 1916 this area

was known as the Diocese of Menevia and Newport.

The role of the Chapter is to ensure the worthy

celebration of the liturgy in the Cathedral, celebrate

the Divine office and assist the bishop in the

governance of the Diocese.

I do hope that some parishioners from Merthyr Tydfil

will be able to join us at St. David’s Cathedral on this

happy occasion. You will be very welcome.

With every blessing

+George Stack

Archbishop of Cardiff
