Welcome to St John Lloyd Parish! We are the Roman Catholic parish serving the south-eastern part of the City of Cardiff: Rumney, Trowbridge and St Mellons. Whether you are a Catholic newly arrived in Cardiff, a member of the parish seeking details of one of our services, researching your genealogy, or just curious about the Catholic faith, we hope that our parish, and our website, can be of service to you. The Parish Clergy serving St John Lloyd are Pastor Gareth Leyshon, a priest ordained in May 2007, and Deacon Rigo Logier, a permanent deacon ordained in September 2012. Before entering full-time ministry, Pastor Gareth conducted research in Astrophysics at Cardiff University. Deacon Rigo continues to work as an independent financial advisor in parallel with his ministry.
Please take a look around our site. When it is fully up and running, the clergy and parishioners hope that it will provide you with lots of information about the life of our parish, its activities – spiritual, charitable and social, its Catholic Schools, Mass times and all sorts of other things. If the information you are looking for isn’t yet up on our site, please use the Contact Us page to ask! We are here to help, whether you wish to discuss, baptism, reconciliation, first holy communion/Eucharist, confirmation, marriage, joining the Catholic faith community – or just a chat about what being a Catholic means and why this page exists!
