Church visits feature in Prince’s summer tour

The Prince of Wales has visited two churches in St Davids Diocese as part of his annual summer tour of Wales.

First stop on Tuesday (July 3rd) was St Jerome’s, Llangwm, home of an award-winning tapestry depicting Llangwm’s links with its historic Flemish past.

The Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall admired the tapestry and presented an award for its imaginative use of digital technology to Pam Hunt, the parishioner whose vision gave rise to the project.

In the afternoon, the Prince also visited St Gwenog’s, Llanwenog, home of some rare carvings by the Belgian sculptor Joseph Reubens, who found refuge in the village during World War One.

 

 

Accompanied by Canon Suzy Bale, the Prince toured the church and met local parishioners and pupils from Ysgol Dyffryn Cledlyn as well as the local Young Farmers’ Club and some rare Llanwenog sheep.
