Llandaff Cathedral

In many ways Llandaff Cathedral is our home as a school. We are enormously privileged to be able to worship in this ancient and magnificent building, which can hardly fail to lift the heart and inspire the mind.

The Junior and Senior sections worship in the Cathedral every week, by kind permission of the Dean and Chapter. The school services include an act of penitence, a reading from Scripture, a relfection on what the Gospel means to us today and prayers for the world. These services takes place on a Thursday at 8.40am and 9.20am, for just 20 minutes and anyone is welcome to join us.

Twice each term there is a celebration of the Eucharist for pupils in Junior and Senior Sections. The Eucharist is a service of thanksgiving, in which our hopes and fears, joys and sorrows are offered in thankfulness to God. Pupils are able to receive Holy Communion if they are confirmed, have made their first Holy Communion or if they normally receive Holy Communion in their home church. Pupils who have not been confirmed can join preparation classes for an annual Confirmation Service conducted by the Bishop.

The school's boy choristers and choral scholars lead choral worship in the Cathedral throughout the week during term time and at major festivals. Music is varied and relates to the readings and the Church's calendar.
