CARNIVAL – We are hoping to have a stall at Burry Port Carnival on Saturday 3rd July to raise funds for our church. Will be holding a quick meeting on Wednesday 2nd June after Benediction and Rosary in the hall at Burry Port for anyone who is interested in helping in any way.

Parish Pilgrimage to Caldey Island


A pilgrimage to Caldey Island has been tentatively organised for Saturday 26th June. This only gives us three weeks to make arrangements for a coach and possibly a Mass to be celebrated during our visit. Therefore please leave your names with Justyn this weekend if you wish to attend. Further information regarding times and price will be printed next weekend. Those interested are requested to give firm commitments to enable arrangements to be made, kind thanks.

New Altar Linen for Burry Port


An anonymous gift of a cloth for the Main Altar and also one for the Credence Table have been received at Burry Port, may we offer our sincere thanks to this kind person – “Your reward will be great”.

Bishop Mullins blessed the altar cloth at Mass in Burry Port last Saturday. It was a very moving ceremony, before which he explained the relevance of the cloth and the ceremony itself.

Red APF Boxes

KIDWELLY – RED APF BOXES – Any parishioners who need to have their boxes emptied please speak to Dominic Conway after Mass. Thank you

Weekly Collection Envelopes

WEEKLY COLLECTION - ENVELOPES – Please find the new boxes of envelopes in the church porch. If you are not on the gift aid list and would like to be added please speak to Maura Jones. Any parishioners who are paying tax can fill in a gift aid form (available from Maura) that enables the parish to claim back the tax paid on their weekly offering. This does not affect your tax payment in any way and can earn a considerable amount of money for our Parish.
