Pastor Gareth has caught covid, and while his symptoms are mild, he is isolating until negative.

Scheduled Weekend Masses will proceed as advertised, with the help of priests from the Cardiff Oratory. (There is no 4 pm Mass in Ynyshir this weekend, as the outdoor Mass at Penrhys Shrine takes place at 3 pm.)

Limited availability of priests mean that services for the Assumption of Our Lady are rescheduled as follows:

Monday 14 August – 6.30 pm at Ss Gabriel & Raphael, Tonypandy

Tuesday 15 August – 10.00 am at All Hallows, Miskin

Tuesday 15 August – 6.30 pm at St Dyfrig’s, Treforest

There will be NO Mass for the Assumption at St Mary Magdalene, Ynyshir

The 3.30 pm Mass in Penrhys Uniting Church is also cancelled.

Pastor Gareth is very grateful for the various offers of food which are coming is, but asks that no more fresh or cooked food should be offered as he has more than he can eat in the next few days, and would not want anything to go to waste.
