Not one to miss an opportunity
It caused much excitement on BBC television as Pasquale presented the cake on the floating pitch in Cardiff Bay on BBC’s “The ONE Show”. Never one to miss an opportunity for evangelisation Deacon Pasquale told us that while they were waiting to go on air Jason Mohammed and the crew were playing a game of who met the most famous celebrity. Following a long list of names including Luciano Pavarotti, the presenter and crew looked to Pasquale and said “Well what about you?”. Pasquale responded by taking his phone out of his pocket and saying “Let me show you”; whereupon he showed them a photograph of himself with Pope Francis taken in Rome last year! They were astounded and excited and wanted to know how he got so close to the Pope. Deacon Pasquale then told them that as well as playing for team Gemelli, he also plays for the Catholic Church as a Deacon within the Archdiocese of Cardiff (he shoots, he scores yet again). Deacon Pasquale tells us a long discussion ensued about his role as Deacon and faith. We hope the cake didn’t melt in the meantime!
Pasquale comes in many guises – chef, restauranteur and as a Deacon. He also makes regular appearances at St. Mary’s Church Stow Hill, St. Michael’s Pillgwenlly, St. Anne’s Malpas, St. David Lewis Bettws, St. David’s Maesglas and St. Basil & Gwladys Rogerstone!
