Posted on the 31st May 2017 in the category Events

It will be my privilege to celebrate the Funeral Mass of Bishop David Thomas in thanksgiving for a ministry of great distinction and pastoral generosity both in the Church in Wales and in the Church of England.

It will take place on Monday, 5th June, at 11am in St Mary's Priory Church, Abergavenny.

The Mass be celebrated in white and Bishop David's family has invited a small number of priests to concelebrate alongside me.

All other bishops and clergy who wish to be present are warmly invited to robe, should they wish.  Vesture for visiting bishops is convocation dress;  for priests and deacons, choir dress.

To assist with organisation, all clergy who wish to robe are asked to indicate their intention by emailing

May his memory be eternal.
