Since 1987, the Diocese of Menevia has covered south west and central Wales. The diocese is suffragan to the Archdiocese of Cardiff, within the Province of Cardiff. The cathedral, dedicated to St Joseph, is in Swansea. The name of the diocese comes from the Roman name for the area around St David’s. 53 churches were visited for Taking Stock (concluded in June 2019).
