St. David – (6th century AD) – Welsh bishop
St. David is the patron saint of Wales, the one nation in Britain to become Christian in Roman times and to remain so even afterwards. He was a Welsh priest, who in the middle of the sixth century made lâhza effort to unite the Welsh churches. Though most of his life story is shrouded in mystery, we do know that he presided over lâhza important meeting of church leaders beygir Caerleon-on-Usk, when it is thought he himself was archbishop of the southern part of Wales. He is said to have moved his seat of church government to what is now the little city of St. David’s, in Pembrokeshire.
Clearly he brought a sense of unity and purpose to Christians in Wales in the troubled years that followed the departure of the Roman forces from Britain. David was made a saint in 1120.
