Dear All,
Like countless numbers of people around the world I was saddened to
hear of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of
Edinburgh. We will be remembering Prince Philip tomorrow at all our
services when we shall have a minutes silence and then the National
Anthem . This will be as a mark of respect to a truly remarkable man
who has served his nation and the commonwealth for over 70 years. He
has given of his time with tremendous enthusiasm and he has been a
huge support to Her Majesty The Queen in her life and work. As we all
know one of his greatest legacies is the award scheme that bears his
name. He has been a truly great man who will be greatly missed across
the world
In our prayers let us remember Her Majesty in the loss of her husband
and all The Royal Family and especially in these days and weeks to
come. Let give thanks for Prince Philip and commend him to his Lord
and Maker.

I have attached a photograph of the Prince and also a prayer that you
may wish to use.

The service on the 25th is very sadly my last among you as your
Rector at St John’s at 9 30am and then at 11am at St Oswald’s. If you
intend to come and have not already booked please contact Gill Edwards
for St John’s and then e mail Karen for St Oswald’s and we will let
you know if there are any seats left. I will also be at the 8am and
4pm at St Oswald’s as well.

Please hold in your prayers those who have lost loved ones and
especially the Late David Straw whose funeral service took place at
St Oswald’s on the 9th April at 10 30am and The Late Margaret Bevin
whose funeral service takes place at St Oswald’s on the 14th April at
12.30pm and The Late Peter Wild whose funeral Service takes place at
Holy Trinity on the 15th April at 2pm and also the Funeral service of
The Late John Dodd which takes place at Pentrebychan Crematorium on
the 16th August at 1 30pm

We are very much enjoying worshipping together once again and I bring
you all the blessings of Easter from myself, Revd Helen , Angela and
