Last week I received three 'anonymous' comments without content apart from the name of one of the female clerics listed in the Diocese of Llandaff''s Bishops, Clergy & Diocesan Personnel. All has become clearer.
I shall spare her the embarrassment of naming her in case the rumours circulating prove to be untrue but I understand that the bishop of Llandaff has chosen the named female cleric to be her chaplain.
Mae Cymru's 'charitable' aim along with gender parity and the advancement of all things gay are high on the list of priorities of the first women bishops of Llandaff and of St Davids where the Dean of St Davids has announced that he will retire at the Friends Festival on 9th September.
The Canon Residentiary will also be leaving St Davids to become the next Archdeacon of Carmarthen in November leaving two key Cathedral vacancies to be filled with serious implications for attendance on current feminizing trends.
