Dean's Welcome

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


Bishop Wyn Retires
The Bishop officially retired on Tuesday 4th October.  Evensong was held in the Nave and was well attended by parishioners and friends of the Bishop.  The choir sang the anthem Locus iste by Bruckner.  At the end of the service that evening the Bishop laid up his crozier and then after the service those attending were able to wish him well for the future.

The Cathedral will not be open to visitors on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday the 1st, 2nd and 3rd November as the Electoral College of the Church in Wales will be meeting to appoint a new Bishop of St Davids.
