Blaen Cwm Penant, near Porthmadog


in North Wales


Welcome to my website---


I am (Fr.) Bob Rainbow and offer my services for

      •  one-to-one spiritual direction

      •  retreat input (including for young people)

      •  marriage preparation courses and

      •  as a supply priest for clergy needing days away.


Click on the headings above for details of each topic.

I am a Roman Catholic priest of the Diocese of Clifton (Bristol area) and now live in semi-retirement in my chosen area of North Wales.

But with the exception of clergy supply work, my roles do not rely on my being ordained; and am available to assist Christians of any of the main denominations in the areas shown above.   I hold a diocesan ‘CRB.’


Please click the links above to discover more about these roles and then contact me for further details.

In addition to my ordination studies I have made substantial extra studies in the following:

•  Counselling skills for pastors;

•  National qualification as a part-time youth worker;

•  Spiritual direction.

Dw i'n dysgu siarad Cymraeg;

but regret that I need to converse 'im Saesneg' -for now!
