HistoryEdit

 
An engraving of St David's Cathedral c.1790 with an account of its history

The history of the diocese of St Davids is traditionally traced to that saint in the latter half of the 6th century. Records of the history of the diocese before Norman times are very fragmentary, however, consisting of a few chance references in old chronicles, such as Annales Cambriae and Brut y Tywysogion (Rolls Series).

Originally corresponding with the boundaries of Dyfed (Demetia), St Davids eventually comprised all the country south of the River Dyfi and west of the English border, with the exception of the greater part of Glamorganshire, in all some 3,500 square miles (9,100 km2). Until 1852 the diocese also included some parishes in Herefordshire.

The diocese assumed its current extent in 1923, when the Diocese of Swansea and Brecon was created from the eastern part of the diocese.[1]

The office of Bishop of St David's has existed since the founding of the cathedral. The current bishop, the 129th, is Joanna Penberthy, whose election was confirmed on 30 November 2016,[2] whose consecration was scheduled for 21 January 2017 at Llandaff Cathedral and her enthronement at St Davids Cathedral was scheduled for 11 February 2017. She became the first woman ordained a bishop in the Church in Wales upon her consecration.[3]

In 2019 the diocese began to reorganise its churches into 23 Ministry Areas.[4]
