ST DAVID’S DAY PILGRIMAGE
Each year for at least forty years our parish has organised a pilgrimage to St David’s Church, Llanthony, Monmouthshire, in honour of St David, patron of Wales (feast: 1st March). This year it will be on Saturday 3rd March with Divine Liturgy 11.00 a.m. This celebration is usually shared with other parishes. Fr Luke brings a group from Llanelli, and the Romanians in Cardiff with their priest also frequently come.
It takes about an hour and a half to drive to Llanthony. Allow a little more for parking (there is plenty) and especially if it is your first time. The Llanthony road from the A465 at Llanfihangel Crucornau is perfectly all right, but is a country road. The village is situated very beautifully in the Ewias valley in the Black Mountains. The church itself, St David’s, reputedly incorporates the remains of an earlier cell built by Dewi (the Welsh form of David), and this is usually taken to be the great St David. The church is often chilly, so dress for warmth!
The church is right next to the sad but beautiful remains of the Augustinian Order’s Llanthony Priory.
Allow time to stay on a little afterwards. Food and refreshment are available in the Priory Hotel next door, or you can bring a packed lunch. The walks on the surrounding hills are worth the effort too!
Google map: search for Llanthony, either the hotel or the campsite will get you there.
