On Saturday 8th July, Father Gareth Parry celebrated a special Mass of Thanksgiving for twenty-one years in Holy Orders, at the Chapel of the Holy Trinity, Gwydir Uchaf, Llanrwst, in the Conwy Valley, North Wales.

A good congregation gathered there on a glorious July afternoon and experienced the lovely atmosphere of the 17th century chapel. The organist was Mr Christopher Roberts, Head of Music at Ysgol Dyffryn Conwy, Llanrwst and the server was Mr Matthew Satterthwaite, Llandudno.

A superb buffet had been prepared by Mr and Mrs Fred Grundey, Glan Conwy and everyone came out for a photo-take after the service.
The ACC (UK) Northern Deanery was represented by Father Roger Bell, Bolton. This was also the launching of the ACC’s first public service in North Wales in the mission of the Good Shepherd and St Tudwal and it is now hoped that future services will be held at Gwydir Uchaf on a regular basis, so that the ACC establishes a presence and witness in the area. Many thanks to all who made this occasion such a happy one.

Provisional Mission of the Good Shepherd and St Tudwal meets for Mass every Sunday at various locations. Please contact Father Gareth for all details on 01492 622671 or 07899 971570 or by e-mail, penmaen86(at)hotmail.com
