Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant! To All Our Welsh Colleagues:  Happy St David’s Day!

Happy 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 St. David’s Day has been celebrated ever since.

Established by the patron saint in the 12th century, the pretty city of St. Davids in south-west Pembrokeshire is officially the UK’s smallest city. It’s also the religious centre of Wales, with two trips here said to be worth one pilgrimage to Rome.

Happy St David's Day

We hope all our Welsh friends celebrate with hwyl and enjoy traditional Welsh Cakes, Bara Brith cawl and lots of singing!

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant!
