Striking altarpiece carved by Belgian refugee, Jules Bernaerts. It is said that Bernaerts used locals as models for his faces depicting Jesus and the disciples at the last supper. The parishoners have also preserved a fine embroidered altar cloth hand stitched by his wife. Llanfihangel is known as a ‘Thankful Village’, one of around 14 villages in England and Wales which suffered no losses on the battlefields or deaths during World War 1.  Rev Margaret Le Grice is the parish contact.


Allorlun wedi’i gerfio gan Ffoadur Belgaidd, Jules Bernaerts

Converted_file_3dbfe5bcCerflun cefn yr allor hardd gan ffoadur o Wlad Belg, Jules Bernaerts. Dywedir i’r cerflunydd ddefnyddio pobl lleol fel modelau ar gyfer y protread byw o’r swper olaf. Hefyd, cedwir gan y plwyfolion lian allor o frodwaith gan ei wraig. Adnabyddir Llanfihangel fel ‘Pentref Diolchgar’ gan ei bod ymysg criw dethol o tua 14 pentref yng Nghymru a Lloeger na gollodd meibion yn y Rhyfel Mawr. Parch Margaret Le Grice yw’r cyswllt i’r plwyf.
