Llandaff Cathedral is a Christian gathering of the Church in Wales, which is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It is also the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff. The Cathedral is a focus of pilgrimage and spirituality in the Diocese of Llandaff and for the City of Cardiff. Our purpose is therefore to worship God and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In so doing, we welcome all who come here, irrespective of gender, race, creed or sexuality, in order that we might share and pass on our rich Christian heritage and the joy of Christian faith.
Thought for the Week
Now is the time for school visits. Between Christmas and Easter, five school groups will visit the Cathedral – almost two hundred pupils, aged 5 to 12, accompanied by some 25 adults. State schools, private schools and special schools, from nearby in Cardiff and the Vale, or further afield, from Brecon and the Midlands. Several groups ask to be met by one of the Cathedral’s volunteer guides. Some want a general tour, to see what there is to see, but others have a specific focus, such as learning more about Christian festivals or the Cathedral’s history and architecture. When a school books a tour, there is a section on the booking form asking if the group has any particular interests for the tour guide to address. One school simply wrote that they “want children to experience the awe and wonder.”
