SEPTEMBER 2017 EVENTS
ΤΡΙΤΗ 5η ΣΕΠΤΕΜΒΡΙΟΥ / TUESDAY 5th SEPTEMBER
Yesterday marked a very special occasion for our Church! The Queen’s Baton arrived in Wales and started its journey that will take it to all the Commonwealth Countries before its arrival next year in Australia! The Baton Relay for the Commonwealth Games (equivalent to the torch of the Olympic Games) arrived on Tuesday 05/09 in our ward Butetown-Cardiff Bay. Our Church of St Nicholas was chosen as one of the destinations for the event and this was a great honour!
We have photos from the arrival of the Baton at the steps of the National Assembly for Wales when it was received from The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, Cllr Bob Derbyshire, the Baton Bearers in front of our Church and from the festivities at the Butetown Community Centre where we had the opportunity to be photographed with the Baton! We would like to thank all our parishioners who joined us and the Ladies Association for the cakes and desserts that they offered on behalf of our Community.
