Diocese of Menevia within the Province of Cardiff
The Apostolic Vicariate of Wales was elevated to diocesan status on 12 May 1898 and had its seat at the Cathedral Church of Our Lady of Sorrows until 1987 when the Diocese of Wrexham was created. The current configuration of the Diocese of Menevia covers the area roughly that of the ancient Diocese of St David's. ("Menevia" was the Roman name for St David's.) The diocese is currently led by an Archbishop George Stack as apostolic administrator, following the retirement of the Right Reverend Thomas Matthew Burns S.M. on 11 July 2019.
The sixth century bishop St Ismael is honoured on 16 June.
There are 27,561 Catholics in the diocese which is served by 34 diocesan priests, 19 religious priests, 9 non-ordained male religious and 100 female religious. There are 34 Catholic educational institutions in the diocese.
