On 7th- 8th May- Celebrate Wales came first time to Cardiff, Wales and was brought by an enthusiastic couple Simon and Mary Cameron and  priest Canon Matthew Jones. Celebrate brought in a revival of Charismatic Renewal especially among the youth and children. The streams and the mime artist made it so lively. It was a wonderful experience to all who attended.
On face book people have been singing it praises here are a few comments;

"Fantastic weekend in Cardiff. Holy Spirit was definitely at work. For the first time in 3 months my son chose to receive communion on Sunday. Praise the Lord!"Teresa De Ste Croix

"wow wow wow, what a weekend, Celebrate Wales was rocking, the Holy Spirit is going to roar through Wales" Kevin Loud from Bristol
The Diocesan Service Team would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of Celebrate..Also here are photos from the Celebrate conference to view shared by Michael Woodward.

For those of you who have missed Celebrate this year in Cardiff, please dont despair as it will back soon next year in Cardiff  and the next Celebrate in South West region will be held on the 22nd and 23rd October in Bristol @ St. Bedes Catholic College, Long Cross, Lawrence Weston Bristol, BS11 0SU.
