The Feast Days of St. Teilo and Our Lady of Lourdes
The Feast Days of both St. Teilo and Our Lady of Lourdes will be celebrated this week. We will be celebrating both of these Feast Days in the parish.
To mark the Feast Day of St. Teilo, we have been invited to join the community at Llandaff Cathedral for Evensong at 5.00pm on Tuesday 9th February.
After Evensong we will have prayers and will venerate the relic of St. Teilo which is preserved in a beautiful casket near the High Altar. Hopefully as many of us as possible will go to this beautiful celebration of our Patron Saint and to, once more, strengthen the bond of friendship between our parish and the Cathedral at Llandaff.
On Saturday 13th February, we have been invited by the students of the Cardiff University
Catholic Chaplaincy to celebrate Mass at the Church of St. Teilo at the National
History Museum at St. Fagans. Mass begins at 11.00am. This is a wonderful opportunity
to celebrate Mass and our Patron Saint in this beautiful pre-
Please note that to enable us to go to St. Fagan’s, Mass on Saturday 13 February at St. Teilo’s, Whitchurch will be at 9.00am. There will be no Confessions following Mass.

Thursday 11th February is the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Every year, 11th February
is marked as World Day of the Sick, an observation that was introduced by St. Pope
John Paul II, and celebrated for the first time twenty-
It is celebrated every year on the commemoration of Our Lady of Lourdes, and for all believers seeks to be “a special time of prayer and sharing, of offering one’s suffering.” (From St. John Paul II’s message for World Day of the Sick in 1993.)
To mark the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes, and to mark World Day of the Sick, we will celebrate Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes at 7.00pm on Thursday 11th February, where we will pray for all the sick of the parish. The Sacrament of the Sick will be available at this Mass. The Sisters from Nazareth House, who care for the sick and elderly, have been invited to this Mass. All carers, doctors and nurses are especially invited to come along.
St. Teilo, pray for us!
Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!
