From our friends in Cardiff

A message referring to an evening Mass at the Catholic Chaplaincy in Cardiff University.....just in case anyone is in the area......

Just to let you know that there will be a low Mass this Thursday (today) at Cardiff University Catholic chaplaincy at 7pm, celebrated by Fr Antony Tumelty OSB. Please do spread the word - it would be lovely to get our numbers up. The mass usually happens every week but we have had a small break because Fr has not been able to celebrate mass for 3 weeks. Fr Tumelty always delivers a wonderful homily and of course the Mass of All Ages is like no other!

We always take a small collection to cover Fr's travelling expenses as he comes from Hereford and is in poor health at the moment, God bless him. Not more than a couple of pounds each though, of course, it's not obligatory. 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to 'phone me on 07837687344. 

Also, a friendly reminder that 40 Days For Life is beginning again tomorrow at 8am outside the abortion clinic on St Mary's street. As ever, volunteers are always needed to help to keep the prayer vigil going. Please be generous with your time, if you can.

The Dedication of St Michael the Archangel

St Michael in the Japanese style*

The Mass in the Extraordinary Form next Sunday (29th September) will be at St Benedict's Church, Sketty, Swansea at 3pm.

It is the feast of the Dedication of St Michael the Archangel and Holy Mother Church, being under attack on all sides, needs his intercession perhaps more now than at any other time in history.

St Michael is, of course, next to Our Lady, the main opponent to Satan and this prayer is the one to pray....

Holy Michael Archangel, defend us in the day of battle, be our safeguard and protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust down into hell Satan and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

* From the works of US based artist, Daniel Mitsui. Please remember the Mitsui family in your prayers as they struggle with a serious pregnancy issue.

Daniel's cards, original drawings and limited edition prints may be purchased online and make excellent gifts.

Menevia's Latin Mass - Sunday 22nd September

St Joseph's Cathedral, Swansea at 12 noon, XVIII Sunday after Pentecost, celebrant, Fr Michael Burke to whom Confraternity members are duly grateful.

Give peace, O Lord, to them that patiently wait for Thee, that Thy prophets may be found faithful: hear the prayers of Thy servant and of Thy people Israel.

We shall go into the house of the Lord.
