Welcome to the home of Menevia Cathedral on the web.


The Cathedral, dedicated to Saint Joseph, is the mother Church to the Diocese of Menevia and seat of its Bishop.


Our mission is to facilitate the Catholic faith by bearing witness to the message of Jesus Christ and encouraging all to seek and know him.


The Cathedral is found in the Greenhill area of Swansea and its origins can be traced to the missionary endeavours of Benedictine priests who extended their pastoral care here from the parish of Saint David in the mid-nineteenth century.


By 1888 the Order of Saint Benedict had nurtured a thriving Catholic community in Greenhill and begun construction of a new parish church.  The church was elevated to Cathedral status in 1987.


Today, the Cathedral continues the same mission set about by the Benedictine Fathers and stands as an outward symbol of the Catholic faith in South Wales.


Rev. Canon Benedict Koledoye
