About St George

Did you know that our beloved patron saint, St. George, has a multicultural heritage? Despite being widely associated with England; St. George hailed from a Greek family and was born in either Turkey or Syria. This diversity reflects the rich tapestry of his background, and his influence extends far beyond the borders of England.

St. George is celebrated with fervour across the globe, from Europe to the Middle East, Russia, India, and even North and South America. He holds patronage over a diverse array of regions, including England, Bulgaria, Palestine, Ethiopia, Greece, Lithuania, Georgia, Malta, and the Spanish regions of Aragon and Catalonia.
