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 Appointment of New Canons to St Davids Cathedral 

The Dean of St Davids has expressed delight at the announcement that Rev'd Dr Matthew Hill, Rev'd Andrew Loat and Rev'd Marianne Osborne have been appointed by the Bishop of St Davids to join the Dean and Chapter.

The Very Revd Dr Sarah Rowland Jones said, ‘We hold them in our prayers, and look forward to their installation as Canons at Evensong on Thursday 3rd October’ and added ‘Please pray that Dean and Chapter will be good stewards and servants of the Cathedral, in all that God is calling us to be and become.’ The service of installation is open to everyone.
