Pilgrimage to Llanilltud Fawr / Llantwit Major

Our pilgrimage to Llanilltud Fawr / Llantwit Major organised by Fr Nicholas of the  Greek Orthodox Church of Saint Nicholas, Cardiff. 

St Illtud’s Church, a cradle of Christianity in Wales, former site of St Illtud’s monastery and school of learning for many saints of the age.

O Illtud the wise and most learned of men
you trained many disciples to be holy and Christ-like.
Such men and women are needed as never before.
Pray continue your intercession for us all

Llanilltud Fawr / Llantwit Major

St Illtud (c.475-c.525) was a Celtic saint, venerated as one of the founders of monasticism in Britain and abbot of a famous school of learning at Llanilltud Fawr in Glamorgan where Gildas, St Paul Aurelian and St David may have studied. The monastery flourished until the time of the Norman invasion.

With our friends from the parish of St Nicholas, Cardiff, we are making a pilgrimage to the 13th century church which is on the site of Illtud’s monastery.

Divine Liturgy will be at 11.00 am followed by a Paraklesis to St Illtud. The church is in the centre of the village (CF61 1WG) and near the railway station of Llantwit Major.
