Welcome to the website for the Roman Catholic Parishes of the Pontypridd Deanery.
CLOSURE OF CHURCHES - 24th March
Last night the UK government announced further measures to control the spread of the virus; among these measures is the closing of places of worship.
But priests will continue to offer private Holy Mass every day for you and your intentions and, where possible, live stream these Masses.
There are many parishes within our diocese, including two in our deanery that live stream. If you wish to follow a Mass that is being streamed live, the deanery website has a list of all the local parishes which have this facility. Visit our deanery Stay Connected page for more details.
The following Churches form our Deanery:
St Aloysius, Merthyr Tydfil
St Benedict's, Merthyr Vale;
St Illtyd's, Merthyr Tydfil
St Mary's, Merthyr Tydfil
Are you new to our Deanery? You are very welcome. If you have recently moved to the area, please make yourself known to the parish priest.
