A message from our Chaplain
A Message from Fr Allan – Associate Sessional Catholic Chaplain to Chaplaincy Services based at The Meeting House and also Parish Priest of St Dyfrig’s Roman Catholic Church, Treforest and All Hallows Roman Catholic Parish, Miskin, Llantrisant and also Chaplain to the newly re-formed Catholic Society.
I am very pleased to write this message of welcome to all students – those returning and those arriving for the first time. I hope that your time here at the University will be fruitful in all kinds of ways. I hope that your lives will benefit from your studies and that you will take advantage of the many opportunities that the student life can bring – not only educationally, but also culturally, socially and spiritually. If anyone wants to chat, talk about the Roman Catholic Faith or celebrate any of the Sacraments I can be contacted at the Presbytery, Broadway, Treforest, CF37 1DB Tel: 01443 402439
Chaplaincy Services are based at The Meeting House on the Treforest Campus. I celebrate mass there every Thursday at 12.15. You are more than welcome to come along. Weekend masses are celebrated in St Dyfrig’s on Saturday at 5.00pm and on Sunday at 10.45am.
The Catholic Society has arranged various events for the coming term – including a Beer and Pizza evening at St Dyfrig’s Presbytery; a mass at the St Fagan’s Folk Museum in the St Teilo Chapel and also the most important, the setting up of the Chaplain’s crib and Christmas Tree at the beginning of December. Other events will be planned. Please keep an eye on the website and your Facebook pages.
My hopes for all of you may be summed up in the Student’s Prayer, from St Thomas Aquinas on the CathSoc card. It says: “Guide the beginning of my work, direct its progress, and bring it to successful completion”.
May God be with you all,
