St. Kentigern

Our Patron Saint 

St. Kentigern lived hundreds of years ago and was also known as Mungo.  He was the first Bishop (in charge of all the priests) in Glasgow in Scotland.  He sent lots of holy men called monks to tell everyone in Scotland (then other countries) all about God and Jesus.

When we see pictures of St. Kentigern, he is usually carrying a bell, which was given to him by the Pope.  St. Kentigern used the bell when he said Mass for the people.  

There are many other stories about St. Kentigern and miracles. One story tells us that his teacher’s favourite bird, a robin, was killed accidentally by a pupil. The pupils all blamed St. Kentigern but rather than be cross, he took the robin in his hands, blew on it and it came back to life! Below  you can see St. Kentigern  in a magnificent mural in Glasgow, it remembers one of his miracles; restoring life to a pet robin.
