Mary Sumner Day


On August 9th, Mary Sumner day was celebrated in Holy Trinity Church Felinfoel with a Eucharist service conducted by the Rev. Glenys Payne, M.U. Diocesan President assisted by Miss Ruth Evans. Taking part in the service were M.U. members from branches in St. Peters, Dafen and Felinfoel.  We were also pleased to welcome M.U. members from St. Mary Magdalene Church Cwmbach in the Diocese of Llandaff.  Also present was Rev. Kay Warrington M.U. Provincial President.

The branch leader and the secretary from Cwmbach read from the scriptures, Judyth (Felinfoel) led the intercessions. The offertery was taken by Carol Hodson (Dafen) and Rita Williams (Felinfoel). The organist was Nona Thomas (Dafen).  After the service tea and coffee was served in the hall by members of the mothers union.  Many thanks to Liz and Judyth for doing the washing up!  Our visitors were given decorative towels as a momento of their visit.

Later, a lunch was enjoyed at the Stradey park hotel and proved a fitting end to a day of worship and fellowship.
