A short triple slide-show of cathedral views


Since the 6th century there has been a church on this site.  For the past 1500 years prayer and worship has been offered to God on a daily basis which continues to this day.   

In this Cathedral we strive to keep the faith which Christ and his apostles taught, to be joyful in our expression of the gospel message to the hundreds of thousands of visitors and pilgrims who come to this Cathedral every year and we hope that this website will show you some of the little things we do day by day to honour God and St David who founded this Cathedral.



The new Archdeacon of Carmarthen, Ven Dorrien Davies, has been officially installed at a service in St Davids Cathedral.

Canon Residentiary Dorrien Davies has been appointed Archdeacon of Carmarthen and was installed in St Davids Cathedral on Sunday 12th November.  The Venerable Dorrien Davies will continue his responsibilities for the Cathedral and Parish of St Davids until 16th January.  We wish him and his family well and pray for them as they start the next chapter in their ministry.

It has been announced that the Lord Bishop has appointed the Reverend Canon Leigh Richardson to be the next Canon Residentiary and Sub Dean of St. Davids Cathedral. We look forward to welcoming Leigh and his family to the community. He will be Installed at Evensong on 12th February.
