Plans are well advanced for a number of events here at St Mary’s Priory in 2014.
We will join the nation in marking the Centenary of World War I with a memorial service and parade in the Summer and at Remembranctide (Saturday 8th November 2014) we will host a performance of Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man by Gwent Bach Choir.
Also being marked next year on June 7th is the 70th Anniversary of D Day. We will join with the Abergavenny Town Band for a day of celebrations in the Priory and Tithe Barn Courtyards.
The previous weekend (Saturday, May 31st) we will again hold a Mediaeval Family Day.
We will of course mark the church’s year with the usual services and ceremonies. Gwent Bach Choir will sing Bach’s St John’s Passion on the Eve of Palm Sunday (April 12th).
Our Lent Sunday Evenings Sermons this year are entitled “Faith in the work place”, following on from our series two years when sector Chaplains spoke about their work, this years will look at from the point of view of the laity- and how they show their faith in their work place.
The Unicorn Singers will mark St Davids Day with a service for “All the Saints”.
