THE Anglican Mayor of Neath, Glamorgan, and the Baptist secretary of the local Free Church Council, were present when Archbishop Murphy of Cardiff consecrated Neath's Catholic church last week.

The ceremony was the first public engagement of Archbishop Murphy (pictured above) since his return from the Vatican Council, At a civic reception given by the Mayor of Neath on the eve of the consecration, Archbishop Murphy said that what he had found particularly enjoyable about the Vatican Council was the way men of different Faiths had mixed, "Suddenly, for the first time. we are beginning to understand each other", he said.

The Mayor remarked that there had not been a parallel to the evening in the modern civic Ilistory of Neath, "I trust that the link which is now being forged will remain," he said.
