You will all be aware of the very sudden and unexpected death of Bishop David Thomas. David was of course Assistant Bishop in this diocese as well as the others in the Province in his role as Provincial Assistant Bishop, and I know that he is held in much respect and affection by many of our clergy and laity, serving and retired. His funeral takes place in St Mary’s, Abergavenny, on Monday, June 5th at 11-00 a.m. Inquiries about attendance and robing should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
