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
The season of Advent and Christmas at St Davids Cathedral is a special and magical time and we hope you will be able to join us for some of our key services and events.

Thursday 10th December has been declared a National Day of Prayer by the Bishops of the Church in Wales.
We, at St Davids Cathedral, will be joining in with this event by having prayers on the hour between 9am and 3pm led by local school children, clergy and other representatives.
We will begin and end the day with our normal pattern of services at 8am and 6pm where will also dedicate our prayers to this cause.
It is a time to pray for the international refugee crisis and also coincides with Human Rights Day. It is also a fitting time to remember all those affected by war, violence or oppression and especially those involved in the events in Paris on 13th November.
We hope you can join us in person or in prayer for some or all of this day.
Please find out more here including links to prayers you can use on this day.
