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.
MINISTRY SHARE UPDATE
Good news from the Diocesan Board of Finance!
Ministry Share payments for next year are to be reduced by 6.4%
The Board has also agreed that individual parishes in grouped benefices will be responsible for prompt payment of their ministry share, rather than the benefice as a whole.
WELCOME TO OUR NEW PRIESTS & DEACONS
God our Father, Lord of all the world,
Through your Son you have called us into the fellowship
of your universal Church:
Hear our prayer for your faithful people that in their vocation and ministry each may be an instrument of your love,
And give to your servants now ordained the needful gifts of grace
Plans have been announced for a digital version of the Welsh hymn book Caneuon Ffydd.
And the ecumenical committee addressing the issue is asking Welsh-speaking parishes and clergy for their help.
If you would like to get involved, the chairman of the committee would like to hear from you. Email
