|St David help us! Still, it's probably|
the most animation this Cathedral has
seen in the last 475 years!

It starts with a flower festival and ends with Walt Disney!
I do not normally comment on happenings in the Protestant Church except when they impinge on Catholic matters but I have to make an exception in this case.
Flower festivals in church leave me cold (sorry Arundel Cathedral flower arrangers). They come about third on my curmudgeon's dislike list after guitars and Euphemistic Ministers (thank you Catholic and Welsh for that title).
Why? Because although people say that they are done for the greater glory of God, I believe that they attract for all the wrong reasons and detract from the Real Presence in the tabernacle.
In addition, they are the soft start to other 'activities' in church.....the Primary School play, a choral concert and now.....Walt Disney!
Not, of course, in a Catholic church but in what used to be a Catholic church, St David's Cathedral in the far west of far flung Pembrokeshire.
This must surely fall under the category 'Amazing but True' - a special Friday* night screening is being promoted of the Disney "Up" animated film - more like 'Down' in my book.
The film was first premiered in 2009 and features a 78 year old widower who hitches balloons to his house and floats off with a young boy on board...ahem....let's leave it there shall we?
But what the H*** is it doing in a holy place like St David's Cathedral?
