St David’s Day

St David's Day

St David was the greatest figure in the 6th century Welsh Age of Saints, founder of scores of religious communities, and the only native-born patron saint of the countries of Britain and Ireland. St David died on 1 March – St David’s Day – in 589. He was canonised by Pope Callixtus in the 12th century, and we have celebrated St David’s Day ever since.
