About the Diocese of Monmouth
Bishop in Office: Bishop Richard Pain
The Diocese takes its name from the county town of Monmouthshire, which sits on the border between Wales and England.
It largely covers the former county of Gwent, now incorporating Monmouthshire, Newport, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent and part
of Caerphilly County Boroughs, as well as the eastern reaches of Cardiff.
The Mother Church of the Diocese is Eglwys Cadeiriol Casnewydd, Newport Cathedral.
