Revd Gareth Leyshon - Personal Page Gareth's personal pages

I am currently assigned as Parish Priest of St Philip Evans Parish in Cardiff.

You will find me on the web at Flickr, Twitter and Facebook.

My current chaplaincy responsibilities include:


From 25 September 2012 until 19 September 2013, I was parish priest of St John Lloyd Parish in Cardiff.

Until 25 September 2012, I was priest-in-charge of St Dyfrig's Parish in Pontypridd.

On 29 February 2012, I stepped down as Chair of the Cardiff Archdiocesan Service Team for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in Wales, a post I have held since July 2007.


In September 1999, I entered St John's Seminary, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Cardiff to train for the Roman Catholic Priesthood. I was ordained to the priesthood on Saturday 5 May 2007. Prior to entering seminary, I spent four years researching dust in distant galaxies, obtaining a PhD in Astrophysics from the University of Wales via Cardiff University.

Originally, I come from Llanelli, where I lived until entering Oxford University in 1991, studying Physics at Keble College.
