A brief introduction to us and our photos so you know who we are should you wish to ask us any questions about St Mary’s.

I am originally from Texas & Georgia but have been in the UK since 1996, when I came to study in London.  I was ordained to the Anglican ministry in 2004 in Newport Cathedral.  I joined this parish in 2008 after serving four years in Rogiet.  In addition to parish duties, I train prospective clergy at St Michael’s College, Llandaff and serve on the Welsh Church’s Ethical Investment Advisory Board.

I moved to the village with my family in 1979.  The children have long since fled the nest and we now have three grandchildren, all of whom visit regularly.  I served as church warden for nine years and am still involved with the church on a daily basis opening it at 9am to dusk for anyone wishing to visit.

I have been involved with the church for over thirty years, ever since we arrived in the village, and am responsible for the church flower rota. In May 2014, I am helping to organise an Open Gardens Weekend in the village, as a fund raising venture for the church. I have also created a log of the gravestones in the churchyard. I am retired, having worked as a software diagnostician for twenty five years.
