Flame 2019

Flame 2019 is the biggest Catholic Youth Event in the UK. The theme of the day is “significance”. In a world where it’s easy to feel constrained to measure self-esteem in Twitter and Instagram “likes”, responses to Facebook status updates, and Snapchat conversations, Flame 2019 hopes to offer a fresh depth of perspective for young people,one centred in their creation in the image and likeness of God. As part of St Mary’s 20th Anniversary celebrations Youth Club would like to sponsor up to 15 of our young people (especially those recently confirmed or to undertake confirmation in 2019) to attend this amazing event. If you would like to go places are being offered on a first come, first served basis. Please put your name and contact details on the form available in the Sacristy.

St Mary’s Catholic Church

Our Church building is a real focal point on Ewenny Road.  The round tower, built from the Ewenny stone of the original church, with the cross, made locally at Merthyr Mawr, illuminated at night, is a fine symbol of our Catholic Faith.

The fine artwork in our church and the offering of the Mass and other Sacraments, the quiet prayer as people call into the church to pray before the Blessed Sacrament and the enjoyable gatherings and meetings in our parish hall, all remind us of the joy, beauty and liveliness of our faith.

Of course, we are the living stones of the Church.  St Mary’s is not just a building, a meeting place, a hall or community centre.  It is where we come together and where we encounter the living God and worship Him and share our faith with others.  It is a consecrated and holy place.  At its centre are the Tabernacle and altar, where we encounter the Living Presence of Jesus Christ. All are welcome – it is He who welcomes us and calls us to welcome others.

The parish supplies a chaplaincy at the Princess of Wales Hospital, it is important that if you have a family member or a friend admitted that would like to see the Chaplain please inform Father Tim McGrath on 01656 652034
