“Lord God, we thank you for the gift of your creation, deepen our respect for all living things
and strengthen us to be responsible stewards of your world.”
The Cathedral is praying this week for a greater urgency in our response to climate change issues.
The Cathedral is committed to examine how it can play its part in this agenda. We already purchase 100% of our electricity from renewable sources (Hydro, Wind & Solar), via the Parish Buying Energy Basket.
On Monday 1st July, we were delighted to welcome 1st The Queen’s Dragoon Guards. The Cathedral is the spiritual home of the Welsh Regiment and the St David Chapel has long been the home of various memorials to the members of the regiment who died in war, including the remembrance books containing the names of the hundreds of soldiers who died in the two world wars of the 20th century.
The memorial stone dedicated during the service is placed at the entrance to the Welsh Regiment Chapel and commemorates the soldiers who died in war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The regiment and the cathedral were particularly pleased to welcome the Colonel-in-Chief, HRH The Prince of Wales, who lay a wreath at the new memorial.
The service was led by the Dean, with prayers offered by The Most Rev’d John Davies, Archbishop of Wales. The Dean received a new standard for safekeeping in the Cathedral in a ceremony symbolic of the close relationship between the Welsh Regiment and Llandaff Cathedral.
The final concert in the Cathedral Summer Concert series takes place on Thursday 11 July and will mark the end of the academic year for the Cathedral Choir.
Thursday 11 July, 7.00pm
Llandaff Cathedral Choir in Concert
Music to be performed will include:
Wesley – Ascribe unto the Lord, Stanford – Ye choirs of new Jerusalem, Parsons – Ave Maria and movements from both the Vierne Messe Solennelle and Mozart Coronation Mass.
Tickets for this concert will be priced £12, £8 (concessions) and £5 for students and will be available on the door. The Cathedral Choir Association will serve refreshments at the close of the concert.
Director of Music, Stephen Moore, says “I am greatly looking forward to this year’s Cathedral Choir Concert which will be the last event of the academic year for the choir and also the prelude to our trip to sing at Canterbury Cathedral the following week. It has been another busy and successful year for the choir which has included a CD launch, live TV and Radio broadcasts and a swathe of new repertoire. The end of year concert allows us round off the year in style and to thank those who are leaving the choir as well as those who have supported us in the last twelve months.”
