Diocese

‘Diocese’ refers to the geographical territory in which a bishop exercises oversight. The Church in Wales is divided into six dioceses each with its own cathedral in which is housed the cathedra (the bishop’s ‘chair’ or ‘throne’).

Prayer

Prayer sustains our human relationship with God and may involve words (formal or informal) or be silent. Prayer can involve adoration (‘I love you’), confession (‘sorry’), thanksgiving and supplication (‘please’).

2021: The Year of Prayer

Year of Prayer Logo [Green+Blue]

This year has been designated by the Church in Wales - and by St Davids Diocese - as the Year of Prayer. Future years will be dedicated to discipleship and pilgrimage. That’s not to say, of course, that we only need to pray for a year! But 2021 will have prayer as its special focus.
