St. Kentigern (Mungo)

St. Kentigern (Mungo)

Born about 518, in Culross, Fife, St Kentigern began his labours at Carthures on the River Clyde, the site of modern Glasgow, living a most austere life near the Molindinar Burn. He was forced to leave the district and retired to Wales for a time. He returned to evangelise Galloway and Cumberland and finally returned to Glasgow where he visited St. Columba. He was buried beneath the (formerly Catholic) cathedral dedicated in his honour.
