Canon  Michael  Evans  2017 ... 2023

Over the years St Patrick’s  Catholic Church Grangetown  has seen many  changes with its clergy.  After the sudden death of Fr  Bogdan Wera in  early  September 2017,  it was pleased to welcome Canon Michael Evans who returned to St Patrick’s  where he was a young curate 30 years ago   under the watchful eye of Canon David O'Flynn.

Since those days  Canon  Mike  has ministered in a wide variety of Parishes:  Ely,  Dowlais,  Ebbw  Vale,  the Valleys, Barry  and  latterly  in  Newport,  where  he  was  responsible  for  six  Parishes.

It was with great sadness that after a period of only six years with us,  in 2023,  Canon Mike was once again moved on, this time to St Helen's Church in Barry.  

During his time in St Patricks  he used tales of his personal spiritual journey to help us to understand the more complex scriptures and people were  encouraged to experience the true joy of the Mass.   He helped us navigate the difficult times of  the Pandemic and is indeed a safe pair of hands.  

Canon Mike has a wonderful sense of humour and is very much  a ‘people’ person.  St Helen's are truly blessed to have him as their Parish Priest.   We wish him every  success in his new Parish.
