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 I 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 Very Reverend Jonathan Lean
Dean of St Davids
Could you consider becoming a 'Godparent' to one of the thousands of children who come here each year on school trips?
To support the work of our Education and Pilgrimage centre in encouraging and facilitating school visits around areas of the National Curriculum and to experience the wonders of the Cathedral itself we are seeking financial support with this work.
If you are able to give £50 to cover the costs of a child visiting and to pray for the children who visit here you will receive a post card from your 'Godchild' explaining what they have done and learned and thanking you for your support.
This is a vital work and one which needs your help.
