Welcome to the Diocese of St Davids, named after Wales’ patron saint whose cathedral in Pembrokeshire is one of the jewels of the nation. The diocese also covers the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire including the western industrial valleys and the town of Llanelli.
BAPTISM & HOLY COMMUNION: Have your say
Following on from the Bench of Bishop’s statement of September 2016 which now permits Holy Communion following Baptism, there will be three Archidiaconal synods to discuss clergy views and concerns and possible ways forward in regard to preparation etc. ahead of a CMD day in October on the subject. The Bishop is keen to hear the views of clergy.

CELEBRATING ST PADARN 517-2017
It’s 1500 years since St Padarn arrived in Ceredigion – and his legacy lives on.
To mark the anniversary, a working group at his church in Llanbadarn Fawr, near Aberystwyth, has planned a series of high-profile events around his feast day, April 15 and they’ve joined forces with the Ceredigion Historical Society and the acclaimed Centre for Advanced Welsh & Celtic Studies at the university to stage exhibitions, talks and social events over Easter and into May.
The highlight is perhaps the celebration of Catholic Mass at St Padarn’s by two eminent Welsh Catholic bishops, Edwin Regan and Thomas Burns on Saturday April 22
