South Wales tradition
Freemasons and their families from the Province of South Wales assembled at Llandaff Cathedral in Cardiff earlier this year for the traditional annual service, all welcomed on behalf of the Dean by Canon Graham Holcombe who opened proceedings.
Readings were delivered by APGMs William Jenkins and Paul Marshall, while Psalm 67 was read in Welsh by Deputy PGM Roy Woodward and then in English by APGM Gerald Rowbottom. St Luke’s Gospel account of the Parable of the Good Samaritan was read by PGM Gareth Jones.
The congregation at Llandaff Cathedral was led in prayer by Past Provincial Chaplain The Rev Dafydd Edwards and APGM The Rev Alistair Swinford.
Those in attendance were also addressed by The Most Rev Dr Barry Morgan, Archbishop of Wales. The collection, held at the service, raised more than £1,000 and was presented to further aid the work of Llandaff Cathedral.
