Celebrating 100 years of the Archdiocese. One of the events to celebrate this anniversary is a Festival of Flowers to be held in St David's Cathedral Cardiff on the 1st July – 4th July. Flower arrangers from SFX and Belmont are doing a display for the Flower Festival. Entrance purchased in advance or on the door is £4 or £3 for full time students and those 65 and over. Tickets can be purchased on line at http://www.cardiffmetropolitancathedral.org.uk/ or on the coupon at the back of the Church. As our excellent flower arrangers are providing a display we thought that some parishioners would like to go and visit the festival and have a day out in Cardiff.

The Provincial Pilgrimage of Faith and Fun for Grandparents and their Families
EVERYONE IS WELCOME to the first Welsh Provincial Grandparents Pilgrimage to Belmont Abbey on 16th July 2016. This will be a day of faith and fun including face painting, bouncy castle, prayer balloons, sports, and much more, together with Rosary procession, exposition and reconciliation, and the Holy Door of Mercy at Belmont.
It is hoped that this will give grandparents the opportunity to share their faith with their grandchildren and families in a fun and relaxed environment; no pressure, no obligation just families sharing a day together and celebrating the roles of Grandparents in our families today.

Children's Liturgy at the 10.00am Mass
A dedicated group of adult leaders explain the Gospel to our younger children through a variety of creative activities, discussion and song. If you are thinking of coming to Mass and worry that your little ones can't manage to sit still for an hour - then this is for you. The children love it, they learn about their faith and best of all you can either stay with them (if they are very young) or get a little time to yourself. Amen to that!
