My name is Dominic, I am a twenty-one year old ordinand from the Diocese of St. Asaph in North East christ-and-saint-menaWales. I graduated this summer with a theology degree from Cambridge and am now training for the priesthood in St. Padarn’s Institute, Llandaff and doing a research degree focussing on theological aesthetics and the Eucharist.

I use this blog to post thoughts, homilies and anything else that springs to mind!

I never expected anyone to read this blog but, to those who venture on, thank you and God bless.


Quodcumque dixerit vobis, facite.
