As the New Year begins we all get back into our routines on site. The following Annual meetings have now been booked into the Diary:

17th March

St Mary’s Priory Development Trust meeting will take place at the Tithe Barn at 5pm

Easter Vestry Meeting will take place in the Priory Centre at 7pm

As many of you already know Fr Mark will be leaving us  at the end of March, and so between 17:30-19:00 (between the Development Trust meeting and the Easter vestry meeting) we will be holding light refreshments for anyone who wishes to attend and give their farewell wishes to Fr Mark who in his time here has had a great influence on the site and the people of Abergavenny, he will be greatly missed by not only the Parish but Abergavenny town itself. We look forward to welcoming you to give Fr Mark the farewell he deserves for his next chapter in life.


A number of parishioners will travel by bus to attend Fr Mark’s Licensing as Rector of Tarleton & Rufford on April 1st. To book your seat visit the Tithe Barn.
