Celtic Saints. Part-Three.


Saint Piran or Pirran. 5th March.

Not many people know that Cornwall is a separate country known as Kernow from England. Fifteen hundred years ago an Irish missionary arrived by boat and set up a bee-hive cell Church. From that point Christianity had reached the Celtic Cornish peoples.

Piran was one of the many men and woman who went out from Ireland, a few years after the death of Saint Patrick. A massive outreach was started to preach the gospel message about Jesus’ death and resurrection from the dead to the western fringes of Britain.

John 3:15-17,  17-21,  1 Timothy 1:15-16,  Romans 3:22-26.
