Welcome & thank you to Fr Keith Kimber for preaching & presiding today. Candlelit Advent Carols - Our annual service of carols and lessons for advent will take place this evening at 6pm. For more details see Geraint.
Refreshments - No tea and coffee today after mass because our hall is hosting a large lunch. Instead we will have some soft drinks and, for those who wish, freshly made Gins & Tonic. All are welcome.
Congratulations - to Joyce who was confirmed this morning by Bishop June at the 9am Eucharist in Llandaff Cathedral. Thanks to all who supported her catechesis.
