Saint Theodore of Tarsus' Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Cardiff

Congratulations to our good friend, Fr James Siemens of the Eparchy of the Holy Family here in the UK, and to his people, who have founded a new Byzantine Catholic (Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church) in Cardiff, capital of Wales. The Latin Roman Catholic Archbishop of Wales, Most Revd George Stack, entrusted the Church of St Cuthbert, not far from the River Taff near Cardiff Bay, to the new Ukrainian parish of St Theodore of Tarsus earlier in the year.

Fr James is director of the Theotokos Institute in the University of Cardiff - "theology before division" - and writes on his blog, Symposium, on the importance of the work of outreach and evangelisation by the Eastern churches in diaspora, especially as they become indigenous in new lands and form integral parts of the Church wherever they are. At Theophany 2013, the Ukrainian Church community in Great Britain ceased to be an Apostolic Exarchate when Pope Benedict established as an Eparchy in its own right, truly an integral particular church member of the Catholic Church in England & Wales (and Scotland and Ireland, too).

See all the links on the parish website, and encourage the new parish by signing the Guestbook:
